WOLVERHAMPTON duo Sam Masters and Ryan Douglas have turned their attention to preparations for the 2020 season after the completion of the Aussie Championship.

Fresh from signing a new deal with the Parrys International Wolves for the upcoming season, Masters produced an improved performance on Saturday to reach the semi-final stages at Gillman Speedway.

Masters was unable to make an impression on the final - leaving him eighth in the standings on 37 points.

The 28-year-old was pleased to put in a positive performance but quickly turned his attention to the upcoming season.

“I’m happier with that but still disappointed I couldn’t turn that semi-final into a final place. I tried hard from gate four and felt quick enough and had a go for a couple of laps before the other boys pulled clear. I changed bikes after my first ride and felt a lot better out there.

“I guess all attention now turns to concentrating on getting things ready for the European season. It will soon be here and I need to be ready.”

In contrast, Douglas’ upturn in fortunes was short lived as the problems that hampered his opening two rounds returned at the Gillman Speedway circuit.

However, similarly to Masters, Douglas has shifted his focus to preparations for another season of progression in 2020.

“It’s another meeting where I didn’t seem to have the speed in the bikes. The other top boys were quick again have they have been all series. I will regroup and come back stronger from this.

“Naturally I wanted to do better than I have but all attention now turns to getting stuff sorted for what will be a big season in Europe for me.”
