Having raised the bar, Cameron Heeps is hoping to reap the rewards with the Ipswich Witches in 2013.

The 17-year-old endured a difficult debut season at Foxhall in 2012, culminating in a broken left wrist which saw his campaign ended prematurely in August, with an average of 4.40.

But after winning the Western Australia State Solo Title at just his second attempt in November, Heeps has returned to Suffolk with a bang and a sharper focus on the job in hand.

“I had a tough time last year but I have made a good start this time around. I don’t want to set any targets, I just want to remain injury-free and consistent,” said Heeps, who has scored paid 12 and 11 in the Witches’ opening two meetings.

“We have changed a few things this season. I am spending more time in the workshop and putting more effort in.

“I am also studying my performance more, while living five minutes away from the track as opposed to in Mildenhall makes it easier for me to get parts for my bike. Before, it used to be hard to get everywhere.

“Everything seems to be going okay at the moment. I have had a few crashes, luckily away from the wall, and I hope to be able to stop them and carry on scoring points.”

He added: “We have a good team, with Ben (Barker) at number one, myself at number five and Leigh (Lanham) as team captain. We all want it this season, we are all hungry.”

Heeps will not be in action tonight as the Witches’ scheduled clash with Plymouth in the League Cup has been postponed.
