The final piece of the 2018 ‘Cases’ Somerset Rebels team jigsaw is now in place, the rider in question being none other than the World Champion, Jason Doyle, who will be returning for what will be his 3rd spell with the Rebels.

Jason first rode for Somerset in 2008, helping the club to KO Cup success that year, he returning in 2012 for a 2-season stint, which culminated in the Rebels first-ever league championship title, the club doing ‘the double’ that year with further KO Cup success, whilst Doyle teamed up with Josh Grajczonek to lift the Premier League Pairs crown for the first time in the club’s history.

Last season saw Jason lead Swindon to the SGB Premiership title, and on a personal level, the Norwich-based rider was finally crowned World Speedway Champion after injury had snatched the title from his grasp the previous season.

“I think this was the signing all Somerset fans had hoped for, but perhaps never though it would actually happen,” said Rebels team manager Garry May, “but I know that Jason considers Somerset has his ‘home’ as far as speedway is concerned, and his signing is a statement of intent by the club for 2018.”
