Ipswich Speedway announce they have been dealt a huge blow ahead of the Premier League playoffs & League Cup Final.

Their in-form number one, Ben Barker, has been ruled out for the rest of the season after a crash in heat 15 at Birmingham on Wednesday has left him with a fractured vertebrae.

He will be undergoing an operation to stabilize the fracture today. We would like wish him all the very best for the operation, a full & speedy recovery and will issue a further update when we receive further news.
