Eddie's future will be announced sometime early next week, it has been revealed. There were some doubts whether Eddie, who has still not signed up for the 2004 season, would be competing this year. Neither he nor his manager have commented on the issue.
Eddie promised to come back stronger in 2004, after a disappointing season last year. With less than a month until the first race it was thought that time could be running out to get a space for the opening round at Buckmore.
Furthermore, the 2004 calendar has not been published on the official website, leading many to beleive that he would not be racing this year.
