James joined the Heathens at the start of the season after being out of speedway for almost 9 years, now 28 years old he wanted to make a name for himself in the sport.
He already had is own business in the motor cycle trade.  Running his company OneTwenty motorsports he wanted to make a name for himself as a competitor.
He impressed in some of the winter training schools and of course his equipment was top-notch.

James had previously had spells with Oxford, Peterborough, Mildenhall and Swindon but he felt he needed a new start after being out for so long.

James had a number of falls during his stay with the Heathens, he started OK with a couple of 5 pointers at home riding in the difficult number 2 slot but 3 last places at Birmingham showed how much he was struggling. Will Pottinger moved him to reserve to get his confidence back in May but despite a few good scores he was still having problems and then he got injured against Buxton in June and was out for the rest of the year.
