Former world champion Jason Doyle to feature in Middleditch’s testimonial

FORMER world champion Jason Doyle is the latest rider to be revealed for Neil Middleditch’s testimonial at Poole on August 31.

As a former Pirate, Doyle’s career has since gone from strength to strength and he is currently enjoying a stellar season at the top of the Premiership averages.

As a Premiership rider, Poole fans have been starved of seeing him in action since his last appearance at Wimborne Road in August 2019, when he suffered just one defeat at the hands of an opponent.

“I’m so pleased to welcome Jason to my meeting and thrilled that he has accepted the invitation,” said a delighted Middleditch.

“I have such great respect for his achievements and I can’t forget how he helped us to an Elite League title in 2011. Of course, now he has moved on to be a truly world class rider and a deserved world champion.

“He remains a force in the top echelons of world speedway and I’m proud to call him a great friend.”

Just as with his fellow world champion Chris Holder, Doyle began his British career appearing for both Poole and the Isle of Wight in 2005.

Over a course of five campaigns between 2005 and 2011, Doyle made more than 100 appearances as a Pirate scoring nearly 650 points.

The 2017 world champion added to his gold medal collections this season as a member of the successful 2022 Australian Speedway of Nations title winning side, just this weekend.

His British career also includes stints with Birmingham, Leicester, Newport, Rye House, Somerset, Swindon and, more latterly, Ipswich.
