Australian champion Sam Masters admits his collarbone injury proved a blessing in disguise after becoming the second man to sign for Wolverhampton for next season.

Masters, who made another appearance as a wild card in the QBE Insurance Australian FIM Speedway Grand Prix in Melbourne this year, is raring to go after making a full recovery from his collarbone injury.

And he will be concentrating on top flight racing after confirming he won’t be racing in the Championship.

I feel I can step up my game and show the fans, club and promotion my full potential and hopefully as a team bring back some gold. See you all soon!

He joins Kyle Howarth back at Monmore for Wolves as they aim to go one better than last season by winning the SGB Premiership title.

Masters said: “I feel very lucky that my average is under eight and I have managed to keep my place at Wolverhampton, as I know unfortunately that’s been a problem for some riders with the new rules.

“I guess I have my collarbone to thank for that. I am honoured to be riding for Wolverhampton again for my third consecutive season, as it’s a place I enjoy turning up to every week.

“I feel I can step up my game and show the fans, club and promotion my full potential and hopefully as a team bring back some gold. See you all soon!”

Boss Peter Adams said: “Sam was under pressure due to his demanding schedule last season and he paid the price for that.

“He didn’t do himself justice for Australia in the World Cup and he suffered a collarbone injury towards the end of the season.

“He’s a quality rider and we are pleased to welcome him back to Wolverhampton. I’m sure a fully fit and refreshed Sam Masters will be a great plus for the team, it’s a big season for him and or the club.”
