Mildenhall Fen Tigers head into the 2015 with a change in the promotion as both Michael Lee and Chris Louis depart, leaving Kevin Jolly to continue the success story of Mildenhall Speedway alone.

Louis has found it increasingly difficult to combine his duties at Ipswich and Mildenhall along with his growing television commitments and feels he is unable to continue at Mildenhall.

Lee meanwhile will concentrate on his engine tuning business as he rebuilds his life following the much publicised court case from which he was acquitted earlier in the year.

It will be a big challenge ahead but Jolly is confident that with the team he has round him the club will continue to grow and challenge for trophies in 2015. “It is a disappointment to lose both Chris and Michael from the promotion as we made a good team and turned round the fortunes of Mildenhall Speedway during our time together.

“But as they say nothing lasts forever, and that certainly is true in speedway.”
