Brief career summary

Despite showing an interest to ride in the UK, and attracting the attention of several British clubs, Šitera ruled out riding in the UK from the start of 2008 due to racing and educational commitments but he signed for the Coventry Bees in July. He rides in Poland for Atlas Wrocław and signed a deal to ride in Sweden for Griparna in 2008.

Šitera travelled to Australia in 2007 where he would win the Jack Young Solo Cup at the Gillman Speedway in Adelaide, becoming the first (and so far only) Czech rider to win the cup named in honour of Adelaide's 1951 and 1952 Speedway World Champion.

In 2011 and 2012, he is a rider for King's Lynn Stars.
