THE Redcar Bears have finalised their team line-up for the 2012 Premier League campaign.
Club captain Gary Havelock will return for his seventh consecutive season at the South Tees Motorsport Park and his 28th in the sport with the seventh berth being taken by 22-year-old German rider Max Dilger who moves to the Teesside club from the Edinburgh Monarchs.
Already signed up were Danish star Ulrich Ostergaard, Aussies Aaron Summers, Robert Branford and Justin Sedgemen plus Czech Republic international Matej Kus.
Bears boss Brian Havelock said: “Max was the final piece of the jigsaw.
“He joins us on a three-point average but I’m confident that he can increase that.
“While with Gary being based locally he has decided to prolong his star-studded career with the Bears for at least one more season.’
The Bears’ first fixture will be at home on the evening of Thursday 15 March when they face deadly rivals the Newcastle Diamonds in a Northern Challenge.
