Australian stalwart Davey Watt will return to Rye House next season - over a decade after his last spell with the club.
Watt, who had a tough 2016 campaign at Poole and then Leicester, is the latest recruit for the Rockets who are preparing for their first season in the top flight.
Co-promoter Steve Jenson said: "Davey actually came to us during this last season asking if we could help him get a Premier League place. That didn't prove possible, but he also wanted to be part of Team BMR for 2017 regardless of what league we were in.

"He's such a long established rider in this country - we're talking 15 years now - and he's become a permanent resident, which effectively makes him an honorary Brit and ideal for the team spirit we want to build in 2017.
"He is also absolutely determined to get back to where he should be. We believe he's on a false average and is going to push the rest of the top-end to give us another potential No 1."
