Lewis Kerr is hoping he’s kick-started his season after putting in a superb display as to score 11 points against Peterborough on Thursday night.

The Witches’ number three came into the season having not raced since suffering a serious head injury in a track crash at the start of August, but a superb display of gating and impressive speed saw him pick up three wins in the Witches’ 48-42 win at Foxhall.

Having understandably taken a few meetings to find his feet, Kerr was delighted with Thursday’s display and is now setting about the task of ensuring he’s a dominant force on the Foxhall track.

“I’m easing my way in, I’d had such a long lay-off last year but hopefully this is the start of things to come,” he said.

“I still feel exactly the same as I did before the accident but maybe having had so much longer off the bike I was maybe a little bit rusty.

“Thursday was great but hopefully I can keep it up, it was only my second home meeting for Ipswich and it was a strong Peterborough side we beat.

“Hopefully I will be on my way now, I’ve always liked the track (at Foxhall) and have done well there so there are plenty of good memories.

“For a Premier League track it’s known to be one of the more grippy tracks so if we can get the home advantage then that would be great.”

Next up for the Witches is a visit to Sheffield on Thursday.
