Aussie icon Jason Doyle targeted another title triumph with Swindon after sealing a return for 2019.

The 2017 world champion is back with the Robins after spending last season on loan with Somerset.

With the Rebels heading back to the Championship, Doyle has rejoined his parent club he helped to title triumphs in 2012 and 2017.

I’ve had so many great memories with the club and they support me a lot in Grand Prix racing even if the team is struggling.

The Newcastle-born racer paid tribute to the Robins fans for their backing and is determined to lead them to another Premiership crown.

He said: “I’ve had so many great memories with the club and they support me a lot in Grand Prix racing even if the team is struggling.

“You only have to look back at 2017 and the shocking start we had but the fans stayed with us and we rewarded them with the league title at the end.

“I’m happy to be back, Wayne and Terry Russell are always true to their word and I want to win the league title again – as well as winning back the world title!”

Robins left Doyle out of their 2018 plans due to his hefty average, opting to sign Nick Morris as their one permitted rider with an 8.00-plus average. But Rossiter hit back at claims there were any hard feelings over his departure.

He said: “Contrary to some keyboard experts, we never fell out with Doyley. We’re delighted to have him back.

“There was never any issue with Doyley; it’s just with team-building restrictions last winter we had to make some tough decisions.

“He’s a great spearhead and it’s great for the sport in this country to have the 2017 world champion racing here.”
