Four Return For 2015
Ipswich Speedway are pleased to announce that they are retaining four riders from the 2014 season: Cameron Heeps, Gino Manzares, Rohan Tungate & Ritchie Hawkins. They will join Danny King with the two reserve berths left to fill. This does mean that Adam Ellis, Morten Risager & Richie Worrall will not be in the side next year.
Co-promoter Chris Louis said he is delighted to keep four of the septet from this year and disappointed that it couldn't be more. "I said at the end of this season that they had all been a pleasure to work with and that I didn't want to get rid of any of them but as always the team-building limit has an impact on who you can fit in. I really want to ‘see it through’ with three of the returnees, Rohan, Cam & Gino, as I brought them all here to Ipswich but I have warned all three that they need to ‘knuckle down, be professional and work hard’ for the whole season next year!.
Witch Number One Is Announced!
Ipswich Speedway are very pleased to announce their first signing for 2015; they have started at the top with Danny King the man chosen to lead the Witches next season. The 28-year-old British International was a Witches asset from 2003 until 2011 when he transferred to Birmingham as Ipswich had decided to move down to the Premier League & the Midland club were moving up to replace them in the Elite League.
Danny is very enthusiastic about his return to Foxhall: “I’m absolutely over the moon, Ipswich gave me my first big opportunity and that’s why I’ve always been so attached to the place, the fans & the management.
“Chris Louis has told me what he wants and expects of me. It’s the same things that I want and expect to deliver. I don’t fear anyone in the Premier League & I can beat any rider.”
Co-promoter, Chris Louis, is more than pleased with his first signing: “It is fantastic to have Danny back at Ipswich which is of course where his professional career began when my dad gave him his opportunity back in 2003. I’ve always had a great relationship with Danny and I feel he is just the right sort of racer and character to take our team forward. The two-year limit on doubling up obviously puts a limit on his Premier League availability, but who knows where the club will be in two years’ time? From my point of view, signing a local lad who is well liked by fans, officials and riders alike, as well as a proven entertainer, is the best possible start to our team building for 2015.”
