THE future looks bright for Ipswich Evening Star Witches after clinching three big deals today.

For the ninth successive season the Evening Star is going to be main club sponsor in 2007.

Rider/manager Chris Louis put pen to paper to confirm that he will be riding speedway at Foxhall Stadium for the 20th consecutive campaign.

And highly-rated 22-year-old Pole Marcin Rempala signed a contract to ride for the Witches in the Elite League next year.

The signing of Rempala is a coup for Ipswich as the youngster is highly rated and rode in the World Cup final at Poole in 2004 scoring seven points.

The former world under-21 number five has not ridden in the Elite League before and comes into the Witches side with a 5.0 point assessed average.

This means he is set to start in the team proper, although this will depend on the make-up of the rest of the side.

Mark Loram is the third confirmed starter, and Louis says he hopes to make public the rest of the team later this week.
