Rebels Return To The Heath On Thursday
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches welcome the 'Cases' Somerset Rebels to Foxhall on Thursday night (24th July) for their third visit of the season, this time for a Premier League fixture. Ipswich won both of the previous two encounters, the last one by a staggering forty points, in a Knock Out Cup tie, but they know that with valuable league points & a play-off place at stake the Rebels will almost certainly provide much stronger opposition in this meeting.
Both sides field their normal 1-7 with Gino Manzares riding through the pain barrier for Ipswich after a couple of hard falls in Round 1 of the World U21 Championship at Lonigo last Saturday (July 19th).
'Schools Out' - with the start of the summer holidays now upon us Ipswich Speedway are pleased to announce their normal 'Kids Go Free' (anyone under 16) starts this week and will include all home meetings up to & including Thursday 4th September.
Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund - Please note Ipswich Speedway Supporters Club will be holding their annual collection for this very worthy cause with riders helping out with collecting during the interval (weather & mechanical issues permitting) plus there will be buckets on the exit gates.
This meeting is sponsored by: Keith Martin Group

Tiger Taming Required This Week
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches welcome the Glasgow 'Allied Vehicles' Tigers to Foxhall on Thursday for a Premier League fixture. Glasgow have not fared well on their travels so far this season, scoring no league points and Ipswich will be aiming to make sure they don't get off the mark against them!
Richie Worrall is expected to return from his recent foot injury for Ipswich with the rest of the team as normal. Glasgow are still without Dimitri Berge through injury and have booked Stefan Nielsen as a guest to replace him.
