SWINDON skipper Jason Doyle says he has enjoyed being based in Poland since mid-May – but he’s keen to see UK quarantine ended!

The 2017 world champion struck a maximum in his latest meeting for Czestochowa in a 59-31 demolition of Zielona Gora.

He’s praised everyone at the club for the way they have looked after him since he made the journey from his Norfolk home to quarantine and then prepare for the season.

Racing started behind closed doors but limited crowd numbers are now allowed into Polish League meetings.

Swindon themselves are still awaiting news from the British Speedway Promoters Ltd on chances of racing this season.

And Doyle has confirmed he is waiting for the UK government to relax the quarantine rule.

“It’s not been hard at all living in Czestochowa, in fact far from it,” he said. “Everyone has made me welcome and I had a good meeting last time out.

“I’m just waiting for the UK government to lift the 14 day quarantine rule for those travelling into the country and hopefully that will enable me to commute to and from England for the rest of the season.

“The weather hasn’t been good over here since I arrived and when I see how hot it’s been in the UK I can’t believe it – especially when no speedway has been possible!”

Doyle is also awaiting news on the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series from the tournament organisers who are working behind the scenes to put the new series schedule in place.

And the British Speedway season remains on hold with a decision expected in the next fortnight on whether the government will grant permission for racing to start.

CFS Filtration Robins co-promoters Alun Rossiter and Lee Kilby remain in regular contact with their fellow Premiership clubs and are continuing to update club owner Terry Russell.
