ZACH WAJTKNECHT admits he wants to keep “progressing” after being signed up for a third successive season at Swindon.

The Bristol battler is a hugely popular star for the Robins and boss Alun Rossiter had no hesitation in bringing back the hot prospect.

Wajtknecht, 20, links up with 2017 World Champion Jason Doyle, rider of the year Tobiasz Musielak, Troy Batchelor and James Shanes already announced for next season.

The youngster, just back from racing in Australia, admitted: “It’s great to be back. It’s my third successive season and I’m confident I can keep progressing.

“I want to do as best I can to repay the faith the club has shown in me. It was OK at the Abbey but I want to improve away from home next season.

“We have a strong looking side already for 2019. It’s great to have Doyley back and a strong top three with him, Tobiasz and Troy.

“It was frustrating last season to miss out on the Play-Offs but that makes us extra determined to make it next year.

“I’m still heavily jet-lagged having got back from Australia on Tuesday. But it was a brilliant experience and I learnt so much. I got to keep racing and I think that will help me start next season much sharper.”

Team boss Rossiter revealed he loves Wajtknecht’s attitude. He added: “He’s a really good kid and he listens which is always so important at his age.

“Zach is level-headed and we’ve seen him get better all the time. I believe he can keep doing that and mature into a top rider.”
