PL Fours Abandoned
The PL Fours was abandoned this afternoon after two heats of the final had been raced, and will be restaged on a date to be advised.
The teams involved will be Edinburgh, Somerset, Newcastle and Ipswich.
Everyone at Ipswich Speedway would like to send their very best wishes to Lewis Kerr who was injured in the incident which caused the meeting to be halted. Our thoughts are also with Josh Grajzconek who was the other rider involved.

Ipswich had comfortably qualified for the Final, finishing five points ahead of Edinburgh to top Group A. However this came at a cost as some reckless riding on the part of Ulrich Ostergaard (Peterborough) resulted in a high speed crash, with NiIco Covatti then being withdrawns from the meeting with a hand injury. We will issue an update when he has been to Sheffield hospital for a checkup.
In the Final Ipswich had won both of the two completed heats and looked to be in a good position before the heat three incident that caused the meeting curtailment.
Witches Fly To Big Home Win
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches stunned the Scunthorpe Scorpions, taking all three league points with a 59-33 victory at Foxhall on Thursday night.
Ipswich skipper, Danny King, was untouchable all night and scored 17+1 with Nico Covatti close behind him on 15+1. Ryan Douglas was top Scorpion on 8 points.
This was a much quieter affair than the away meeting between the two teams at the Eddie Wright Raceway two weeks ago with no dramas in between races.
