IPSWICH ‘Sackers’ Witches star Cameron Heeps is ready to race in the Star of Anglia on Thursday after his crash at Workington on Saturday night.

The 17-year-old Aussie was taken to hospital after sliding off at the Derwent Park circuit and hitting his head on the fence, during the Witches crushing 61-29 defeat.

“I’m still a bit stiff, but I’m feeling okay,” said Heeps.

“I made a bit of a mistake going into the corner and hit a rut and slid off. It wasn’t too bad but when the paramedics knew it was my neck and head that I’d hit, then they took extra precautions with a neck brace and I was off to hospital.”

The crash meant Heeps missed the chance to be reserve for the Australia U-21 side that rode in Germany on Sunday.

And while he is happy with his start to the season, he is hoping he can cut out the falls.

“I could do without the crashes,” Heeps said.

“I’ve had a few already this season and it’s costly as well as painful.

“But I’m happy with the way things have started, I’m in the workshop most days with Rohan (Tungate) and Morten (Risager), it’s nice to have them around and I’m learning a lot.”

Ipswich fans will certainly hope Heeps is soon back feeling fit and strong as his contribution to the side so far this season has been excellent.
