SWINDON skipper Jason Doyle has given the new-look Abbey Stadium circuit his seal of approval.

Ahead of a massive month of August for the CFS Filtration Robins, Doyle has praised the efforts of the track staff who have helped to maintain a racing strip which has produced some thrilling action this season.

After an early settling-in period there have been some memorable moments in 2019, including Doyle’s sensational match-winning effort in Heat 15 against Ipswich’s Krystian Pieszczek, and the from-the-back efforts of Danish star Rasmus Jensen who won a race against Belle Vue from the 15-metre handicap.

Last week’s thumping win over the Aces also saw good conditions despite record-breaking temperatures – a fact not lost on the Robins captain.

Doyle tweeted: “Credit where credit’s due! Swindon track staff done a great job yesterday in extreme heat to make the track not like a dust bowl!

“Dixie Dean and all the volunteers, thank you! We have another good race track in England!”

Robins now move on to a crucial phase of their season, starting with a home clash against top-four rivals Wolverhampton next Thursday (August 8).

With Poole and Ipswich seemingly clear at the top of the Premiership, the scrap is on for the remaining two play-off places, with little to choose between Belle Vue, King’s Lynn, the Robins and Wolves – and any away win for those sides against their direct rivals could alter the picture considerably.

Robins also travel to Belle Vue, Ipswich and Poole during a hectic eight-day period in mid-month, with the Witches and Peterborough visiting the Abbey over the August Bank Holiday period.

And the club are running a special offer for all three home matches across the month, which take place on August 8, 26 and 29 – with family tickets available for £30.

The family ticket includes two programmes, and admission for two adults and two children or one adult and three children – working out at £7 per adult.

Special family tickets for August home meetings are only available online at and can be bought right up to the start of racing on the day.

Club director Steve Park said: “I have often heard it said that speedway is a £10 sport and we must encourage more youngsters to come along and watch the sport.

“Well, our August offer of a family ticket for £30 answers both of those questions. Grab the kids or the grandchildren, or even the great grand-children and introduce youngsters to the sport and enjoy a cheap ticket in the process.”
