Australian U21 international Dakota North is the latest name to be added to Peterborough's starting line-up for the new season.

North is the Panthers' fifth signing and will be racing in the Elite League only after previous doubling-up spells in the top flight.

Peterborough co-boss Jan Staechmann said: "Dak is a Panthers asset and is a young man with plenty of ambitions in the sport.

"Having followed his exploits from a distance I think we have an exciting young rider who will fit in well with the rest of the team.

"We had plenty of headaches last season from the double-up position due to rider availability and injuries.

"So it was important for us to address that situation and make sure we didn't leave ourselves open to vulnerability in that department again. Dak fits the bill perfectly."
