FIM Speedway Grand Prix newcomer Max Fricke has confirmed he won’t return to SGB Premiership side Belle Vue for 2020.

Fricke joins the SGP World Championship line-up for the first time next year after finishing third at the GP Challenge in Gorican last September.

With Fricke already racing for Wroclaw in Poland and Indianerna in Sweden, he was reluctant to add the hectic British calendar to what’s set to be the biggest year of his career to date.

But he admits leaving Belle Vue after five seasons was no easy decision. Posting on Instagram, he wrote: “After a lot of thought and consideration I’ve decided to not race British league in 2020.

“This will relieve some of the pressure and time commitment required to race across three leagues and allow me to focus more on my personal fitness, preparation and performance in the GPs.

“It was a really difficult decision for me and I’ve changed my mind numerous times because I love riding at Belle Vue.

“I’ve had five amazing years there and I’m grateful to everyone at the club, management and spectators alike, for the support they’ve given me during this time.

“It has been a real honour to captain the team and represent Belle Vue racing at No.1 and I would like to wish the Aces the best of luck next season.”

Aces have already kicked off their 2020 team building by recruiting former Poole No.1 Brady Kurtz and ex-SGP star Peter Kildemand to replace the Victorian racer.
