FORMER World Champion Jason Doyle is to make a sensational return to Premiership racing with Ipswich.
2017 GP series winner Doyle last rode in the UK two years ago when he led Swindon to the league title – ironically defeating the Witches in the Grand Final.
The Australian star says the Foxhall side were his first choice after nearly joining the club earlier in his career, and that the British set-up is perfect for his overall schedule.
Doyle said: “I made the decision after this year that I wanted to come back to British Speedway and Chris (Louis) was the first one I spoke to, and obviously from the years before where we were close to signing contracts, I thought it was time to go to Ipswich for the first time.
“For myself, riding a lot in England helps me riding in Poland and in the Grand Prix, and I seem to go a lot better when I’m on the bike and not thinking as much as perhaps I have the last couple of years when I have been doing Poland and Sweden.
“The young kids, they really need to look at the way I do it because for myself I think it benefits my racing when I do go to other major competitions.
“Obviously, we beat Ipswich when I was riding for Swindon, so hopefully I can be in the team with Ipswich to lift the title next season. That’s the main goal for us, just get to that Final and then we can go for it.”
