Sheryl Crow famously sang that ‘A Change Would Do You Good’. Danny King clearly thinks differently.
The Huntingdon-based international speedway racer is happy just as he is. King hopes to remain with both his current clubs in England for next season - he has already sealed a deal with Coventry in the Elite League and expects to do likewise at Ipswich in the Premier League - whilst also staying put with Danish side Munkebo and Polish outfit Pila.
The 29 year-old said: “We reached the semi-finals of the play-offs at Coventry in the Elite League and I’m really happy to be back again next year.
“It never quite clicked for Ipswich in the Premier League last season. It was a very good season individually as I increased my average, but it was a bit underwhelming for the team.
“It looked a really fantastic team on paper and a lot of people tipped us to win the title, but we ended up missing out on the play-offs and losing meetings at home proved costly.

King also represented his country during 2015 as a member of the Great Britain side which bowed out of the World Cup at the race-off stage. It was the second successive year in which he earned selection and he is hopeful of being in the frame again next year.
“It is a huge honour for any sportsman to represent his country,” added King. “And I’m very proud to have done it.
“It could have gone better in the race-off, but I had never been to the Vojens track in Denmark before.
“I’ll learn from the experience and hope I can put in the performances in my league races to be back in the GB team again next year.”
One change for 2016 could see King swapping his current GM engines for new machinery from Czech manufacturer Jawa.
