The ‘Wightlink’ Wizards squad continues to expand with the news that Rob Watts will be a Wizard in 2018. The 29 year old lives near Ashford in Kent and cannot wait to get racing in the Southern Development League.
An elated Rob said, “It's an honour to be asked to ride for the ‘Wightlink’ Wizards in their first season in the SDL. From travelling over and watching on the island as a child, then practicing at the My First Skid school, it has always been an ambition to eventually be a part of the team. After hearing the club would be entering the SDL this year I knew from then I wanted to be a part of what I hope will be a successful season for the team and me.”
Wizards Co-promoter Barry Bishop said, “Martin, Kev, Sid and I are delighted to offer Rob a team place for our 2018 Wizards squad. Rob has been a regular at My First Skid since its launch and we know he was desperate to ride for the club should the opportunity arrive. With the Wizards, he now has the opportunity to continue his speedway development and make a mark on the league.”
