JASON Doyle made Belle Vue Speedway history by becoming the first rider to win three consecutive Peter Craven Memorial meetings.

The Swindon skipper topped the qualifying scores at the National Speedway Stadium with 14 points and then took the honours in a six-man grand final.

Home duo Dan Bewley and former Pirates star Brady Kurtz completed the rostrum finishers in a meeting packed with entertaining racing.

Doyle said: “It couldn’t have been a better end to the season for me. I was a late addition to the meeting, but I’m delighted to have had the opportunity to take part on a fantastic night.

“It’s been a tough year for everyone, especially the boys that have been riding in Europe, and for me to win three Peter Cravens on the bounce is just amazing.

“The six-man final was quite interesting. I don’t think it’s ever been done at Belle Vue before, but the boys got stuck in, we rode safe and it was a thoroughly enjoyable meeting.”

Poole’s Steve Worrall was eliminated at the semi-final stage, along with Lewis Kerr.
