Crump to race in Sanders’ memorial

Ipswich Witches are delighted to announce that current World Champion Jason Crump has accepted an invitation to ride in the Billy Sanders Memorial Pairs to be staged at Foxhall Stadium on Thursday April 29th (start 19.30) in honour of the late Billy Sanders and to mark the 25th anniversary of his tragic passing.

Ipswich Witches are delighted to announce that current World Champion Jason Crump has accepted an invitation to ride in the Billy Sanders Memorial Pairs to be staged at Foxhall Stadium on Thursday April 29th (start 19.30) in honour of the late Billy Sanders and to mark the 25th anniversary of his tragic passing.

Three times World Champion Crump is not competing in the Sky Sports Elite League this season in order to concentrate on his quest for a fourth world title so his agreeing to ride in the Billy Sanders Memorial Pairs is a major coup for Ipswich Speedway.

There is also a personal connection between the Crump family and Billy Sanders as Jason’s father Phil Crump was a team-mate of Billy’s in the Australian national side of that era , making Jason’s participation in the meeting all the more poignant.
