Kurtz said he is delighted with how things have shaped up and can't wait for tapes-up.

"I'm delighted to have put together such a strong line-up. My thanks go to all the lads that have agreed to help me out," he said

"I'm lucky to have made some really good mates on my travels who also happen to be really good speedway riders. I'm sure the boys will go out there and put on a good show for the fans."
