Aussie icon Jason Doyle tipped Zielona Gora’s fortunes to improve as bids to add a Polish Ekstraliga gold medal to his increasingly glittering CV.

The Newcastle-born racer starred for Falubaz this year, but injury issues took their toll on the club with Jaroslaw Hampel missing almost the whole season as he recovered from a broken leg, while Kenni Larsen was also sidelined with head injuries following an incident with an airgun in his homeland.

We thought we had a pretty bad injury season with Hampel being out and Kenni Larsen getting injured at the start of the year. I think things will change at Zielona Gora.

With Hampel working to get back to his best and the club also boasting the likes of Polish champion Patryk Dudek and local legend Piotr Protasiewicz, Doyle is confident Falubaz can better a season that saw them fall short of the final as they bagged bronze overall.

He said: “We thought we had a pretty bad injury season with Hampel being out and Kenni Larsen getting injured at the start of the year. I think things will change at Zielona Gora.

“We have Jacob Thorssell as our back-up rider and we have a good team. Everyone gets along and does their job. It’s not just about having big names in a team; it’s also about team work.”

Doyle will also star for British side Swindon, where he won the Elite League in 2012, and Rospiggarna, where he lifted the Swedish Elitserien title last year.

This will be only his third Ekstraliga season, but Doyle is clearly enjoying life with Falubaz – with the influence of Polish team manager and multiple FIM Speedway World Cup winner Marek Cieslak playing a key role.

Doyle said: “I had a great time at Zielona Gora last year. The club is great; it is a happy club and with Marek Cieslak there, it’s a lot better having a great role model in the sport to look up to.”
