TOP British star Chris Harris, who is gunning for a Grand Prix return, is the final rider confirmed for Thursday's Bob Kilby Memorial meeting at Swindon (7.30).
Harris is sitting out the GP series after spending the past six seasons as a regular and is concentrating on winning back his place for 2014.
He remains one of the most spectacular performers in the Elite League and has this winter switched from Coventry to neighbours Birmingham.
Robins co-owner Gary Patchett said: "Bomber loves Blunsdon, he’s sure to be in with a shout of winning.
"I'm really looking forward to the meeting and a very strong field is sure to deliver a cracking occasion to honour the great man."
Robins captain Hans Andersen warmed up for the Kilby Memorial when finishing third in the final of the Ben Fun Bonanza meeting at Berwick on Saturday night behind former Swindon rider Mads Korneliussen, who will also be racing again at the Abbey on Thursday.
The organisers will hope that former world champion Nicki Pedersen recovers quickly from the practice session injury which forced him to pull out of the Freddie Lungdren Testimonial meeting at Wolverhampton on Sunday.
