Jason Crump won the 2006 World Speedway Championship in Prague about two weeks ago, but the Australian has had little time to celebrate his runaway win in the championship.

The double World Champion raced to a maximum in Poland the very next day, competed in Britain the following day, Sweden was next and back to Britain on Wednesday to a washed-out meeting for his British club Belle Vue.

"I haven’t had much free time to celebrate the win yet," said Crump. "It’s been go, go, go; my schedule has been so bush I have been conducting business from by hands free phone either driving to or from an airport. My focus now is on the Grand Prix in Latvia."

There are only two round of the championship remaining, and the 31-year-old Queenslander said he is still determined to continue dominating.

"This weekend in Latvia will mark a milestone in the history of speedway," said Crump. "It will be the 70th anniversary since the first World Championship was won on September 10, 1936 by Australian Lionel Van Praag. There is no better way to celebrate my championship than to win."

Crump uses K&N Engineering products. "The pressure is off me now, but I will not be doing anybody any favors during the battle for runner-up position," said Crump. "I may have won the World Championship already, but that does not mean I will be taking it easy. I use K&N Filters and want to continue our association with K&N as long as I am racing."
