Oxford's favourite son will return home this year as Todd Wiltshire becomes the final rider to sign for the 2003 Oxford Silver Machine.

Wiltshire became firmly established as the fans favourite when he joined Oxford mid way through 1998 and was instrumental in their championship success of 2001. Rules surrounding the use of Grand Prix riders forced him to miss last season in England but he is now set to grace the Cowley circuit once more.

Nigel Wagstaff was relieved to have finally got his man: "Despite the problems I have had I am really pleased with the team that I have assembled and I know that they will cause a few surprises this season" he was also keen to thank those people who had made the deal with Todd a reality. I must thank Ken Soames from Monarch who has been a tremendous help in finalising the deal with Todd".

The team roar into action next Weekend when they open the season at Coventry on Saturday, March 15th. This follows Press and Practice day which is being held on Friday, March 14th. The first home meeting is on Friday, March 21st when the visitors will be the visiting Kaparna side from Sweden and they will be no push over as the team boasts both Peter Karlsson and Ryan Sullivan.
