OXFORD have added former title winner Kyle Newman to their line-up as they prepare to enter the Championship in 2022.
Newman, who turns 30 today (Tuesday), was part of Somerset’s successful squad at that level eight years ago, and joins the Cheetahs after his campaign was cut short this year by Eastbourne’s closure in August.
He said: “I’m really pleased to be part of Oxford Speedway’s return to the sport and thrilled to have agreed a deal with Jamie (Courtney) so quickly. When I read the Cheetahs were returning, I immediately let Jamie know of my availability.
“This is a fresh start for me, and a challenge I am really looking forward to. Oxford’s closure coincided with the beginning of my career, so I have only raced at the stadium once with Weymouth Wildcats.
“I attended a few times as a kid, though, and remember the buzz on a race night. The stadium and its facilities are fantastic and will provide a great boost for British speedway in general.”
