The Vortex Hammers will welcome Robert Mear back to The Arena Essex Raceway for 2016 season, after the Hertfordshire rider was added to the Elite Draft having decided to return to racing.
The Hammers have also picked Lewis Blackbird dependent upon the Ipswich based rider returning to racing next season.
“We’re delighted with the pick this year and with Robert back in action following a successful return to grass track racing and only racing in the Elite League, it’s a significant step forward from last years Achilles heal.
Lewis is a track specialist and we are more than hopeful that he will return to racing and with the draft options it’s a risk we’re prepared to take, but we have a back up plan in place should he not.”
