Bears announce first 2016 member
Redcar ‘ECCO Finishing Supplies’ Bears are delighted to announce that Jonas B Andersen has re-signed
Ahead of Bears for the 2016 season at the Media Prima Arena they are pleased to have confirmed Jonas' services once again.
Jonas joined Redcar part way through the 2015 season, and immediately became a crowd favourite with his tenacious, never say die style of racing. He also finished an excellent sixth in the Premier League Riders championship as a late replacement at Sheffield. Jonas will join on a 5.60 average, most likely putting him in a second string position.
Jonas admitted it was not a tough decision to come back to Redcar, after enjoying his time at the club last season:
“It was easy for me because I really like the atmosphere around Redcar Speedway and I have found some sponsors here – even though I did get some good offers from other PL clubs. I enjoyed racing for Redcar a lot, it was really fun and I got some good experience I can bring for 2016. My goal for 2016 is to do my best again, and hopefully get on a 7 average by the end of the season!”
Redcar team manager Jitendra Duffill is pleased to welcome Jonas back for the 2016 season, and admits he was one of the highlights of the 2015 season:
“In 2015 we acquired an asset in Jonas who impressed me all year. He has bags of talent and never knows when he is beaten. On a 5.6 average he is a steal for next year and I’m pleased that he has agreed to return in 2016.”
