JASON CHASIN’ WORLD DOUBLE

Sunday March 31, 2019
JASON DOYLE admits he is going to be “pushing very hard” this year for Swindon and to regain his World Championship.

The fast Australian won the Peter Craven Memorial opener in fine style at Belle Vue on Saturday night, retaining the title he won a year ago.

Now he’s aiming to get his second World title and help the Robins to a great season at the Abbey Stadium.

He said: “It’s a great way to start the year. Last year I did the same and tailed off at the end. It’s going to be a tough season again but I’m really looking forward to it.

“Two win two Peter Craven Memorials on the trot is a big moment for myself and my career.

“I hope it’s a sign of good things to come this year. We have a good team at Swindon and I’m really looking forward to it.

“I hope it’s a good omen, Peter Craven was a double World Champion, I hope I can do the same.

“To win one world title was a massive thing, I never thought it would happen. If I could win two it would be a dream come true.

“We are going to be pushing this year very hard. I’ve got some really good people behind me this year and also some good engines.

“We’ll have to see what happens, it’s a long season. I just need to stay injury free, we are going to be doing over 80 meetings so it’s early days and just got to stay in one piece.”

Doyle returns to Swindon after a year away with Somerset and is delighted with the new era of management and circuit.

He added: “It’s a very good thing for Swindon speedway to have a new track, we are really looking forward to it, I like the team.

“The management are really good. We’ve got Alun Rossiter and now Lee Kilby. It’s a fresh start and I believe it will be good.

“You always start a season enthusiasm. Last year was tough, I had a target on my back and now Tai (Woffinden) has that target being World Champion.

“Obviously there’s a lot of hard riding when you have that target on your back. I couldn’t deal with that at the start of the year, I was trying to stay safe. I had bike riders coming at me left, right and centre.

“This year I feel really clear in the head but there’s a long way to go.”
