Ipswich ‘Sackers’ Witches star Morten Risager is well under way planning his big Testimonial date.

Saturday, March 22, 2014 is the night in question for a Testimonial Meeting he hopes will draw a large crowd to Foxhall Stadium.

As well as being the opening night of the season at Ipswich, Risager is hoping to bring some Grand Prix riders to a meeting that will take the form of a 16-rider individual, with two semi-finals and a final.

“Things are already underway,” he said.

“I’m glad to get the date organised now and to have the meeting at the start of the season is what I wanted, so then I can concentrate fully on the Witches season, which is more important.

“Hopefully I will get a GP rider or two there. I will certainly be getting a few Witches legends back for the night.

“And of course I want all the current Witches there too.”

Risager has been in British Speedway for 10 seasons, hence his Testimonial, despite him being only 26 years old.

An Ipswich-owned rider, he was bought by Chris Louis, along with Kevin Doolan, when the Witches joined the Premier League in 2011.
