Louis is today at a special meeting of the Speedway Promoters' Association in Rugby when he will be seeking clarification over the complicated rolling averages rule that is proving detrimental to Witches team-building plans.

Ipswich have so far confirmed Scott Nicholls, Jarek Hampel, Paul Hurry, Tom P Madsen and Danny Bird as certain starters and they will begin working on the remainder of their side next week.

The make-up of the Sky Sports Elite League should become clearer after today's meeting. Nigel Wagstaff is set to move from King's Lynn to take over at Oxford, making eight clubs – one less than in 2002.

British Speedway chairman Chris Van Straaten said: "An agreement is in place for Oxford to continue in the Elite League and King's Lynn's application for Premier League membership will be considered at our special meeting."
