Great Britain star Chris Harris is delighted to be reunited with mentor Colin Pratt at Peterborough for 2021.

Bomber launched his British top-flight career with the Panthers in 2003 and returned in 2017. He was due to start his third stint there in 2020, but didn’t get the chance when the season was cancelled due to the pandemic.

But Peterborough wasted no time in snapping Harris up for 2021 and the deal reunites him with Pratt, the man who brought him to Coventry in 2004, before Bomber went on to lift three Elite League titles in their colours.

I’m happy to be back, and it’s great to be working with Colin Pratt again.

The Cornishman cannot wait to team up with Pratt at the East of England Showground this year. He said: “It was such a shame last season got cancelled, especially as I was really looking forward to riding for Peterborough.

“But thankfully I’ve managed to keep my spot in the team with everything that’s going on with the rules and everything else. I’m happy to be back, and it’s great to be working with Colin Pratt again.”

Panthers have confirmed they will be without Danish star Niels-Kristian Iversen and Aussie racer Rohan Tungate due to Polish rules limiting First Division riders to racing in just two other leagues.

But Harris teams up with double FIM Speedway World Cup winner Bjarne Pedersen, who returns to the UK for what will be his final season on the shale.

Bomber added: He said: “It’s fantastic to have someone with Bjarne’s scoring power that he’s had over the years, and he’s always been the ultimate professional. He does things right and it will be good to ride with him. Obviously I know the rest of the boys pretty well, so I can’t see why we shouldn’t still be up there battling.”
