Scott Campos is to return to the Wightlink Warriors in 2018.

The rider, who joined the team last season, became a huge hit with the fans for his death-defying blasts around the sweeping bends at the Andrew Younie stadium.

Campos said: ‘Obviously, I am delighted to be back on the Island!

‘I really enjoyed my time there last season, with some good scores, especially at home.

‘To get a team spot sorted so early means that I can get my bits sorted and test some new things engine-wise to help my away performances.

‘To be honest, the island is probably the only place I would have come back to as everything about the place, from the promotion to the fans, is absolutely fantastic!

‘I am genuinely looking forward to seeing what next season brings.’

Warriors team manager Jackie Vatcher said Campos’ was a ‘great addition’ to the club.

‘Scott joined us after Kings Lynn withdrew from the National League and immediately he was a major boost to the team where he provided solid support for the heat leaders,’ he said.

‘Scott was a great addition to the team, in what was a difficult year on track for the team.

‘We are all delighted that he is back on board for next year with a handy 5.80 average, and we are already looking forward to seeing him blast around the air fence at Smallbrook.’
