SOMERSET Rebels star Jason Doyle miraculously escaped without serious injury from the horror crash he suffered in Saturday’s British GP, writes Stephen Allen.

The defending world champion was thrown from his machine, which followed through and landed on top of him, during heat 20 but he was discharged from hospital without any serious breaks.

Rebels team manager Garry May said: “I think I speak on behalf of all speedway supporters when I say that the news we received today was amazing.

“To come through that sort of crash without serious injury was incredible.

“Jason is feeling pretty much second-hand right now and will be side-lined for a couple of weeks under medical precautions.

“There is no doubt we will miss him during his time off the saddle, but the important thing is for us to wish him a speedy recovery.”

Jason has expressed his thanks to everyone who has sent him personal get-well messages since his Cardiff crash.

The Rebels’ next meeting is on July 30 at King’s Lynn and then host Swindon on August 1, so Doyle will be missing both those fixtures, but the hope is that he will be fit enough for the next round of the Speedway GP on August 11.
