It means Panthers could face the prospect of replacing their top two riders from last season.

Jack Holder is also thought unlikely to return due to Panthers continuing to stage home meetings on Sunday when he is expected to be racing regularly in Poland.

Panthers owner Ged Rathbone and team manager Carl Johnson are staging a fans’ forum on Monday (7pm, East of England Arena) at which they will discuss future plans.
