MAX Fricke has expressed his delight at being recalled to Belle Vue, after two years away from British league racing and is ready to put all his Grand Prix experience into practice for the Aces.
The 25-year-old spent five seasons with the club before electing to focus on his world championship campaign in 2020 and 2021; the latter in which he finished a career-best 8th.
But the former World U21 Champion has been tempted back to the National Speedway Stadium for the upcoming Premiership season, along with Charles Wright.
On his decision to revert back to the British League, he said: “My schedule for next year, even with the Grand Prix series, has opened up to give me the opportunity to return to the UK.
“My first thought was Belle Vue for many reasons and if the reaction of the fans at the Christmas Cracker is any indication, I think I’ve made the right choice.
“It is amazing to be back in Manchester with the Aces again. I’m somebody who likes to keep busy and this fits in perfectly with my commitment for next year.
“We’ve only confirmed two names so far, with myself and Charles [Wright] but there is an exciting vibe coming from the club already for 2022.
“I’m really excited about the team that Mark [Lemon] is putting together and hopefully it can be this team who can take that final step to win Belle Vue the Premiership title.”
