Bach joined Comets last season from Newcastle and proved to be one of the most entertaining riders at Derwent Park for many a year with his rides from the back and his trademark passes off the fourth bend.

Bach formed an exciting partnership with whoever he rode with and despite riding at number three for the majority of the season he was never far off the number one spot.

Co promoter and new owner Laura Morgan said: “Myself and fellow co-promoters Tony Jackson and Steve Whitehead thought first and foremost that Rene had the potential to increase his average.

“The main thing though is that he is a racer and he is not frightened to drop the clutch and find the dirt and he was definitely going to be in our team because he provides exciting entertainment.”

Morgan said that Bach was keen to come back and be part of the brilliant team spirit that has been evident in the Comets camp all year.

Morgan added that she was looking forward to him Bach providing more of the same entertainment that he had this year.

She added: “Rene had already expressed a desire to be back as he enjoys the team spirit and camaraderie and he will be part of that in 2013.

“He is a character and he fits in well with the rest of the team.

“I think there will be quite a lot of disappointed Newcastle fans because they were quite confident he was going back there.

“But we have bagged him and I am absolutely delighted.”

Morgan will be attending the British Speedway Promoters Association annual conference next week, along with Jackson and Whitehead and said it was possible that another signing could be announced before then.

She added: “We have got off to a brilliant start but some of the decisions made at the conference could determine how we proceed and we will carry on from there.”
