After much discussion and track work Friday night's important Championship match between the Parsons Peebles Monarchs and Ipswich was called off shortly after 8 o'clock.

All the riders had been keen to ride even after a fairly heavy shower at quarter past six but they did ask for some track work to be undertaken. Start time was put back to 8.15 and the riders changed and bikes were warmed up but the track work did not produce a surface that satisfied the riders and the match was called off.

No restaging date has been agreed and the Parsons Peebles Monarchs are next in action at Sheffield on Sunday.
