IPSWICH Evening Star Witches will have to try again tonight to get their opening meeting of the season on, against local rivals King's Lynn Stars.

After thrashing the north Norfolk side at the Norfolk Arena on Wednesday, the Witches were all set to make their 2008 start in front of their own fans last night.

But drizzly rain in Suffolk from 4pm onwards put paid to those hopes and the meeting was called off at 6.30pm, with rain still falling.

All the Witches are available once more, while Lynn guest Jason Crump is hoping to re-arrange some testing practice in order to race against the Witches.
