On the night that Australian Chris Holder wrapped up his maiden World Championship, Australian speedway legend Jason Crump raced his last race on the world stage.
“I am extremely proud of my record in the Grand Prix and have gone into every single world championship meeting believing I could win,” he said in a statement. “This is a tough, unforgiving series and I would like to think that I have always been a contender. Although I am not at the Grand Prix series summit with one round remaining, I have won a round in Copenhagen this year and have made finals throughout and made my presence felt.”
Crump did not finish off the podium between 2001 and 2010, is number one on the all-time Grand Prix scorers list and top of the list of all-time GP finalists. He will continue racing in Europe.
