Brilliant Comeback By Redcar Bears

  Redcar Bears made a brilliant comeback last night to totally turn the tables on visitors Leicester Lions and record an emphatic full points victory. But a third of the way through the meeting, we were already trailing by 10 points and looking well off the pace the Bears seemed to be staring a a crushing defeat in the face. It was a quite phenomenal turn around led by paid maximum man Jason Lyons and resurgent reserve, flying Dane Peter Juul, that saw us roar to a scintillating ....

Bears Sign Tomicek

Following two narrow home defeats the Redcar Bears management have signed Czech Republic international Lubos Tomicek to bring the team back up to the full seven riders.   Explained club boss Brian Havelock: 'We have been operating the rider replacement rule to cover for the absence through injury of Adam Roynon.

An enthralling night’s speedway ended with a final heat race off between Prem league leaders Ipswich and Redcar last night at South Bank.

As the fog closed in at South Bank the Bears turned round a 2 point deficit at the break to rocket home to a 10 point victory. Newport Wasps had just overtaken the Bears but normal service was resumed after the interval for a storming finish for a victorious Redcar.   A night of exciting racing in the fog and the summer sun was blotted out meaning it was suddenly like winter.

Bears Tamed By Comets

Redcar Bears faced their stiffest test yet in the pre-season build up fighting all the way before a last heat defeat to Workington Comets in the A66 derby. The Comets are being tipped as possible league winners so a narrow defeat was no disgrace for a home team that finished with the wooden spoon last season. It once again shows just how impressive the summer rebuilding job has been. The Bears mix of youth and experience could make for a fiery formula.   The Comets blazed a trail early ....

Bears Get Off To Flying Start

  Redcar Bears put some of the bad memories of last season’s last place finish behind them by starting this term with an emphatic victory.
