Louis takes over at Mildenhall

SUFFOLK speedway clubs Ipswich and Mildenhall have linked with Witches director of speedway Chris Louis leading the promotion that has taken the Fen Tigers back into the National League.

West Row-based Mildenhall are set to open their doors to racing again in 2011 where they will be part of a ten-team National League.

The news comes after an application to join the league was turned down at a recent AGM, but under a new management team they have now been given clearance to take to the track.

The new Fen Tigers promotion is led by Louis, with the former British International getting assistance from 1980 world champion Michael Lee and local favourite Kevin Jolly.

And showing their commitment to the development of young British talent the trio will also be running a speedway academy at the West Row venue.
