SWINDON Robins skipper Jason Doyle says delivering the SGB Premiership title was the perfect way to sign off the season for the club as he bids to complete a golden week on Saturday night.

Doyle heads to the Torun Grand Prix this weekend leading the way in the world championship standings, knowing a strong showing could clinch him the crown with a round to spare.

The Australian’s season has been hampered by a broken bone in his foot, which caused him to miss a clutch of Swindon meetings midway through the year.

That came after he was given a hefty average of 13.41 to start the season, with the 31-year-old grateful to the club for sticking with him despite it creating a serious team building headache for boss Alun Rossiter.

Doyle has enjoyed another strong year in Robins colours overall and repaid the faith when it mattered most with a scintillating performance in the second leg of the Premiership Grand Final on Wednesday night, banking a 13+1 points haul from five rides to inspire his side to overall victory by a single point and the league championship with it.

“I apologise for my form in the last couple of months,” said Doyle, who topped the Premiership’s end-of-season averages.

“People will understand that when you have got this much pressure on yourself and you are trying to stay safe, you have got to ride sensible.

“Sometimes it hasn’t been happening for me and I knew I had to do something special on Wednesday to repay all the fans with my performance and it happened.

“I would like to thank all the Swindon supporters for sticking by us.”

Doyle’s attentions now turn to individual honours but he will not be putting any pressure on himself as he heads to Poland tomorrow.

The Australian was leading the world championship standings when he arrived at the Torun GP 12 months ago but suffered nasty injuries in heavy fall in his very first ride that ultimately ended his season and saw him finish the year down in fifth place.

“I don’t want to say anything after what happened last year in Torun,” said Doyle “I went there, had one ride, didn’t even do half a lap and put myself in the fence and was out for the rest of the season.

“We will just see what happens. If it doesn’t happen this year there is always another year as I am going to be in the Grand Prix the following year.

“That’s the way you have to look at it. You never know in speedway what is around the corner.”
