    Poole have moved to hand Australian talent Brady Kurtz his debut in Elite League racing next season.
    The Pirates have been extensively linked with the younger of the racing brothers, who will line up for the reigning champions on a converted 5.24 average.

    Swedish star Freddie Lindgren will be back in Wolverhampton colours in 2016.
    Lindgren, 30, has finalised a deal to return for his 13th season with the club as he aims to bounce back from a tough 2015 campaign. The former Grand Prix star saw his average drop to a modest 6.11 on his return to Elite League racing after a year-long absence

    Wolverhampton have swooped to bring Danish talent Mikkel Bech to Monmore Green for the 2016 season.
    The highly-rated 21-year-old, a World Cup winner in 2012, becomes the fifth member of a new-look Wolves team alongside Freddie Lindgren, Joonas Kylmakorpi, Kyle Howarth and Max Clegg.

    Coventry favourite Jason Garrity will return to Brandon next season.
    Garrity, who has helped the Bees to the Elite League play-offs in the last two campaigns, will be taking a place in the top five of the team for the first time.

    Belle Vue have confirmed the signings of British duo Craig Cook and Richie Worrall for the new Elite League season.
    Cook starred in the Aces’ run to the Grand Final this year, as well as in the decider against Poole, whilst Worrall rejoins his parent club after missing out on top-flight racing in 2015 and will link up with brother Steve at the National Speedway Stadium.

    Unbeatable on his day. So let's hope that he will have rediscovered his form by the start of the new season.

    He was very very poor on this years GP series.

    Yes amazing - his form just fell off a cliff

    Good for the Elite League to have him back as N-K-I and Magic J will not be racing in 2016

    Its a shame the top stars with Polish and Swedish league clubs continue to desert the Elite League. It's understandable in a way in that you can get around so much easier on the continent without having to fly in and out of the UK.
    In theory it should help promote more home grown talent. I'm going to the Kelvin Tatum and Nigel Pearson at Somerset in February for the Fans Forum.

    Well at least one Grand Prix star is riding - Matej Zagar will be back as Belle Vue's No.1 for the 2016 campaign.
    It will be the fourth consecutive season the Slovenian will line-up for the Manchester outfit as he joins Craig Cook as well as brothers Richie and Stevie Worrall in the Aces septet

    I really like Zagar, and he went up a further place in my estimation, despite the spiteful and unfounded comments that Rossiter made about him last season following his injury, and the amount of blood he was having drained from the Haematoma on daily basis.

    Polish star Grzegorz Walasek is to return for a second season with Leicester in 2016.
    Walasek proved to be a high-scorer especially in home matches for the Lions last season, despite suffering a series of injuries which left him on the sidelines on three separate occasions.

    The popular Australian youngster has made tremendous progress with the Robins in recent years, culminating in him making his breakthrough in a heat-leader role in 2015

    Batchelor joins Robert Lambert as a confirmed starter for the Stars next season, and the club have also confirmed their home meetings in 2016 will take place on Thursdays rather than Wednesdays.
