NO POLISH PLANS FOR CRUMP

Triple world champion Jason Crump has no plans to make a PGE Ekstraliga comeback, according to Polish reports.

The FIM Speedway Grand Prix legend is set to get back in the saddle after seven seasons in retirement when he lines up for SGB Premiership club Ipswich in the UK.

The 44-year-old made the surprise decision to come out of retirement after representing Australia in a test-match double-header at Perth’s Pinjar Park in January, where Great Britain skipper Tai Woffinden led the Lions to back-to-back victories.

Crump has made numerous casual appearances on the shale since walking away from the sport professionally. And having got back on track full-time, there was instantly talk that he might contemplate a Polish return.

With newly-promoted Rybnik lacking a No.1 following Greg Hancock’s retirement from the sport, he was linked with a move there.

But Crump is also heading to the UK to support son Seth as he lines up for MSS Performance in the British Junior Supersport Championship. With many of Seth’s scheduled race days clashing with the PGE Ekstraliga calendar, it is believed this deterred Crump from returning to the world’s biggest league.

His tuner Ashley Holloway still expects the Bristol-born racer to pile up the points on his comeback. He told Przeglad Sportowy: “Jason asked me for engines only for English tracks, because from what he said there were no plans to return to Poland.

“I regret that, because if I could advise him, I would definitely recommend him to return to Poland.

“However, this is his decision. I am convinced that after returning he will race at a high level and he could race in the PGE Ekstraliga. Riders like him do not forget how to ride even after such a long break.”
