IPSWICH Evening Star Witches are chasing Pole Piotr Swiderski to complete their 2008 Elite League speedway team.

The 24-year-old is a Peterborough asset and achieved an average of 5.19 with the Panthers last season.

He is surplus to requirements at the East of England showground this year, and Ipswich promoter John Louis is believed to have sounded out Peterborough at the weekend for permission to talk to the Rawicz-born rider.
