IPSWICH Witches entertain Peterborough Panthers this afternoon at Foxhall Heath hoping to repeat the form of Thursday night when they beat Wolverhampton.

And before tapes up at 3.15pm today, the Witches riders will be signing autographs and meeting the fans in a repeat of the popular event held last season.

With children under 16 going free if in possession of a voucher from the Evening Star or EADT and accompanied by a paying adult, it is an opportunity for fans to get up close and speak to the riders.

JAREK Hampel will be riding in Saturday's Grand Prix in Leszno. He has been given a wild card entry on his home Polish track.

IN heat 14 of Peterborough's meeting at Coventry on Friday night, the heat result finished 0-0.

Edward Kennett and then Claus Vissing were both excluded in separate crashes, and when down to two riders, the Bees' Jordan Frampton clipped Peterborough's Kenneth Hansen's wheel and flew into the fence with Hansen, clearly unsettled, crashing out on his own one bend later.

With both riders laying on the track unable to continue, referee Jim Lawrence excluded them both and awarded a 0-0 heat result.
