JASON Doyle will continue his hunt for vital world championship points when he resumes action at the German Grand Prix in Teterow on Saturday.

The Swindon Robins skipper has not enjoyed a fruitful 2019 campaign in the individual championship races, winning just seven heats from 31 that he has started.

The 33-year-old has reached just one final in that time and is averaging seven - his lowest Grand Prix average since joining in 2015.

As a result, the Australian lies in 10th position in the World Championship standings on 42 points and faces an uphill task to automatically qualify for next year’s series of events.

Russia’s Artem Laguta is the man Doyle has to catch in eighth place if he is to extend his consecutive number of season’s raced in the elite level of individual racing to six.

However, despite the tough task that lies ahead for Doyle, he can hang on to the fact that he won this GP back in 2016 - the same year he would have almost certainly gone on to win his maiden world title if injury had not robbed him of the chance with a handful of rounds remaining.
