FINALS WEEKEND: Accommodation Shortage

Ipswich Eagles chairman Bryan Harvey has been in touch to say that Ed Sheeran is playing four concerts at Chantry Park in Ipswich over the August Bank Holiday weekend which is likely to cause a shortage of hotel rooms in the Ipswich area so riders and spectators may need to book early.

With some of the racing taking place in Norwich this may ease some problems for some competitors. Many of the weekend details are still to confirmed but as in 2015 camping may be available at Gt Blakenham on the football pitch. Otherwise it may be worth looking a bit further afield for a hotel room.
