Australian champion Jason Doyle is in a stable condition in Royal Melbourne Hospital after a dramatic crash in the DON Smallgoods Australian SGP final on Saturday night.

The Newcastle-born racer tangled with Greg Hancock going into bend one after both made superb starts. Doyle crashed hard and was briefly knocked unconscious.

He was treated at the Etihad Stadium by the RACESAFE Medical Team, before being transported to Royal Melbourne Hospital for further treatment.

RACESAFE chief medical officer, Dr Greg Harris, said: “I can report that Jason is awake, alert and in a stable condition.

“As a result of the crash, he has sustained neck and chest injuries, which are stable. He will receive continued care over the coming days. He is in good spirits.”

BSI Speedway, Etihad Stadium and Motorcycling Australia wish the new world No.5 a speedy recovery.
