MASTERS GETS MELBOURNE SPOT

Aussie star Sam Masters has been handed a dream call-up for the QBE Insurance Australian SGP after Jason Doyle's withdrawal due to injury.

Australian international Sam Masters has been handed a dream call-up for the QBE Insurance Australian FIM Speedway Grand Prix following Jason Doyle’s withdrawal due to injury.

Masters served as wild card in last year’s inaugural event at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium, scoring five points.

After finishing as runner-up in the Australian Championship for the second year on the trot, he was named as first track reserve for this season’s event, with champion Brady Kurtz handed the wild card spot.

But with four-time SGP winner Doyle sidelined by lung, shoulder and elbow injuries, Masters has been promoted into the starting line-up, with series reserve Vaclav Milik unable to join the field at this late stage with bike air freighting already in progress.

Masters, who dons the No.17 race jacket, will be keen to build on a stunning season which saw him make his Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup debut, break into the Swedish Elitserien with Lejonen and help Wolverhampton reach the British Elite League Grand Final.

New World Under-21 champion Max Fricke is promoted to first reserve with the second stand-in rider to be confirmed.
