FORMER Swindon Robins skipper Jason Doyle made history by becoming the first-ever four-time winner of Belle Vue’s flagship Peter Craven Memorial meeting on Monday night.

The 2017 SGP world champion stormed to victory in the six-rider grand final at the National Speedway Stadium ahead of former and current Aces riders Robert Lambert and Dan Bewley, who completed the podium trio.

Home skipper Brady Kurtz had led the qualifying scores to go straight into the final but had to be content with fourth place in that race ahead of Charles Wright and Niels-Kristian Iversen.

Doyle said: “This was an amazing night for myself, and to go down in history as having won this very special meeting four times is something that will always be close to my heart.

“Sometimes I can come to Belle Vue and be amazing, other times I come here and get smoked. This track, especially, can make you feel very vulnerable if you don’t have speed.

“But tonight, I felt pretty good. I made a lot of changes over the winter, which is why I went back to Australia. I sold all my old stuff and basically bought all brand new for this season.

“Once I had the set-up, I felt confident. You really must savour moments like this because you never know what the next meeting will bring, but right now it is an amazing feeling.”
