SPEEDWAY News and fixtures

(SPEEDWAY 1)IPSWICH produced a powerful performance to win the Premier League Fours in Sunday's Final re-staging at Leicester.The Witches ran just one last place throughout the 20-heats and finished with an impressive 44-point total, eleven ahead of the hosts who had to settle for second place.Lasse Bjerre and Mat Tresarrieu, who had a brief spell with Leicester earlier in the season, both scored twelve points for Ipswich, backed up by skipper Kevin Doolan with ten.Leicester were well-served by Kauko Nieminen (14) and Magnus Karlsson (13), whilst Workington finished third on 30 points with Somerset fourth on 21.(SPEEDWAY 2)SCUNTHORPE/SHEFFIELD have won the National League after the most dramatic of play-off Finals against Mildenhall.The Saints took a huge 29-point lead into Sunday's second leg, before remarkably seeing that wiped out within eight races at West Row - but trailing by three points on aggregate with one heat to go, Ashley Birks and Richie Worrall were the heroes with a 5-1 to snatch a 93-92 overall victory.Promoter Rob Godfrey said: "To say that after thirty heats you win by one point - it's mind-blowing what happened tonight. I genuinely believed that we'd blown it and we'd have to give in gracefully, and I was prepared to do that although the pressure had been on to win but it's the beauty of speedway."Our Achilles heel was that we threw away seven points at Scunthorpe with mechanical problems and a load more tonight with the same thing. Fair play to Mildenhall though, they came out of the traps like we did on Friday and took us to the last race in a thirty heat final, you couldn't script it any better."(SPEEDWAY 3)MILDENHALL co-promoter Michael Lee was far from downbeat after seeing his side miss out on the National League title by the narrowest of margins.The Fen Tigers have enjoyed a highly successful revival in 2011 under their new promotion, and became Knockout Cup winners earlier in the weekend.Lee said: "I am incredibly proud of the boys. To win the KO Cup and come so close to winning the league as well, in our first season in charge, is brilliant. In all my years involved in speedway, I've never known a meeting like today's."I'd like to congratulate Scunthorpe on winning the league, they are a terrific team and deserved their success. I'd also like to say thank you to everyone connected to Mildenhall Speedway, from the riders to the backroom staff and our brilliant fans, for making it a season that will last long in the memory."(FIXTURES)MONDAY OCTOBER 24:MIDLAND BOWL 2nd leg: Wolverhampton v Coventry 7.30NATIONAL LEAGUE: Belle Vue v Newport 7.30THURSDAY OCTOBER 27:16-LAP CLASSIC: Ipswich 7.30FRIDAY OCTOBER 28:PREMIER LEAGUE: Berwick v Newport 7.30, Plymouth v Edinburgh 7.30SATURDAY OCTOBER 29:PREMIER LEAGUE: Newport v Edinburgh 6pm, Workington v Plymouth 6.30pm, Workington v Plymouth (follows previous fixture)SUNDAY OCTOBER 30:PREMIER LEAGUE: Workington v Edinburgh 3pmNATIONAL LEAGUE: Newport v Scunthorpe 6pmACE OF HERTS: Rye House 6pmJUNIOR GOLDEN HELMET: Glasgow 3pm
