It has been confirmed that Nico Covatti has three breaks to the index finger on his right hand, and it is thought he will be out of action for at least 3 weeks. He is currently seeking medical advice in Italy and here in the UK and will decide later today where to start his treatment.
With Rogan Tungate still out of action we will be booking a guest for both Thursday & Friday this week. More details to follow...
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.
