IPSWICH Evening Star Witches lost their second speedway meeting to the weather this week when their fixture against Wolverhampton was rained off.

The Suffolk side rode just one heat in their Sky Bet Elite League meeting at Eastbourne on Monday, but they never got close to starting at Foxhall Stadium last night.

Referee Paul Carrington, Witches vice-captain Hans Andersen and Wolves skipper Steve Johnston walked the track to the first bend by which time they made a decision to call a halt.

This was at 6.35pm with steady rain falling and the forecast for the remainder of the evening poor.
