IPSWICH Evening Star Witches have failed in an ambitious bid to bring former world champion Greg Hancock to Foxhall Stadium.

After intensive talks lasting most of the week, the American is unable to commit himself to riding in the Sky Sports Elite League.

He is now based in Sweden and has a full schedule of meetings in that country and in Poland. And Hancock's backers are keen on him putting every effort into retaining the world title, with the first Grand Prix of the season taking place in Poland tonight.Ipswich also approached Tomasz Gollob, and the Pole, who rode for the Witches in 1998, 1999 and 2000, was sympathetic.

But he fears that his form is not good enough to hold down a heat leader berth.
