slashesDoyle is top NGK-sponsored rider in Prague

Former World Speedway champion Jason Doyle was the pick of the NGK-sponsored riders at the ANLAS Czech Republic Grand Prix.

The Aussie scored 12 points and reached the final, with stablemates Emil Sayfutdinov taking 11 points to make the semi-final stage, and Robert Lambert and Matej Zagar scoring six and four points respectively.

The NGK line-up of stars was depleted in Prague for the meeting, which was won by Poland’s Janusz Kolodziej, with triple and current World champion Tai Woffinden being unable to compete through injury and four-time World champion Greg Hancock once again absent for personal reasons.

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd Marketing Manager Mark Hallam said: “Jason has had a frustrating start to the season so to see him make the final was great while Emil continued his recent impressive form and is now in fifth position in the championship standings.”

The NGK-sponsored riders’ bikes are all fitted with the company’s spark plugs which are the number one choice of the sport’s top riders and will once again return to the track at the Norrbil Swedish SGP in Hallstavik on July 6.
