Aussie international Brady Kurtz is on his way to Belle Vue for 2020 as he prepares for “a whole new challenge” after four years at Poole.

The Cowra-born racer was Pirates’ No.1 for much of his time at Wimborne Road, establishing himself as one of the SGB Premiership’s brightest stars. He has also impressed on the continent, playing his part as Leszno won their third straight PGE Ekstraliga title this year.

I’m looking forward to racing at the National Speedway Stadium. I think it’ll suit my style very well although the track is very different to Poole. I look forward to a whole new challenge.

Kurtz is looking forward to life at the National Speedway Stadium, but admits it will be strange not to be racing in Pirate blue and white following their drop into the Championship.

He said: “I’ve spent my whole Premiership career at Poole, so to be switching to Belle Vue next year certainly feels weird.

“I had some interesting conversations with Lemo [Aces boss Mark Lemon] about it and the more we talked, the more I felt like it would be a great idea. I’m really excited to get started with the Aces.

“I’m looking forward to racing at the National Speedway Stadium. I think it’ll suit my style very well although the track is very different to Poole. I look forward to a whole new challenge.”

Lemon is delighted to have made Kurtz his first 2020 recruit. He said: “Signing Brady is a real coup for the Aces.

“He is a big talent and has a big future in the sport and will be no longer a thorn in our side as we have witnessed in recent times on his visits to the National Speedway Stadium with the Pirates. I believe we are in for a real treat with this signature – a move that will suit both Brady and Belle Vue.”
