CHRIS Harris believes Peterborough’s team would have been title contenders.

‘Bomber’ was all set to return to the club after a move to Ipswich last year and had agreed a deal before the season was scrapped.

The former Grand Prix racer with over 100 appearances at the top level is also hoping the same team can stay on track for next season.

He said: “It was a good team we had and I reckon we’d have been right up there.

“It was all set up for an exciting season and we had a lot of strength in all parts of the team, hopefully that can remain the case for next year.

“I was pleased to be coming back after what happened last year. Everyone knows I enjoy it at Peterborough and I’m pleased it all worked out.

“The track was good last year, what Buster (Keith Chapman) did there was excellent and you could see that by the amount of times the track record went.”

Harris has revealed how he would love a fourth British title. He’s in the line-up for Saturday’s British Final at Ipswich as Panthers’ sole representative.

“It means a lot to be in the British Final and that’s why I went to such lengths to be at Ipswich this Saturday,” he said. “It wasn’t easy getting it all sorted to fly out early Sunday and then ride in the World Longtrack but I managed it.”

Like everyone else, Harris is hoping to see fans back at other sports so speedway can start next season on time.

“It’s such a shame that we haven’t had a league season and I feel for everyone, it’s been a bad year and I’ve lost income like everyone else,” he said.

“It’s good to look ahead to next year now and hopefully we can get the season started in the spring. I think so many people will be desperate to see the sport again having missed a full season and I’ll be raring to go with the rest of the boys.”
