In 2015 I won my second world title, my first was in 2013, and I won 3 British Titles back to back. I race domestically across Europe in Poland and Sweden and in the FIM Speedway Grand Prix Series.

Speedway is pretty much motorsport in its rawest form. We race 500cc motorbikes that weigh around 75kg, and they accelerate faster than an F1 car with top speeds of up to 80mph. The big difference is we don't have brakes! The bike just has a throttle, clutch and one gear and we race on shale-based oval tracks and you basically power-slide around the corners. It's pretty gnarly!

Each race has four riders, we do four laps and the first placed rider gets three points, second two, third one and nothing for finishing last. In the GP Series, the top 16 riders in the world race over 11 rounds, and every point you score counts towards your overall total. The top eight scorers from each round go into two semi-finals, and then the top two from those races go into the final, where the winner is decided.

Take a look around the site and try and catch me at a track near you soon.

TAI WOFFINDEN SGP PREVIEW

TAI WOFFINDEN has admitted he will stick to his “tried and tested” gameplan as the SGP goes into its second half.

The Scunthorpe-born star goes into this weekend’s Betard Scandinavian FIM Grand Prix in Malilla leading nearest rival Fredrik Lindgren by 20 points.

But Woffy, who turns 28 a day before the GP, is not even thinking of his third world title.

He vowed: “I let other people do the talking about the Championship. A lead means nothing until you actually cross the final finishing line.

“However, I’m looking forward to Malilla. It’s a track that I like and that I have had some success at. I went well there in the league this year in Sweden. It’s another round, another opportunity to score some more points.

“We’ll see if we can come out of there with the same lead, if not bigger.

“The tried and tested gameplan stays the same. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Aim for the semis, aim for the final. Once there it doesn’t really matter.

“Cardiff has gone now. I haven’t thought about Cardiff since the Sunday night after it. It’s gone, history.

“I’m really busy this month, starting with the test match. It’s good for me normally but maybe a busier than I’d like to be this month. But I can deal with that, it’s not a problem. Then we’ll see where we are at in four weeks.

“There will be a few more GPs out the way and hopefully I’ll still be in a very good position.” Woffinden has been in excellent form, finishing second in the last British Grand Prix three weeks ago and then top scoring for Great Britain at Glasgow last weekend.

But he remains grounded about his approach to every meeting.

He added: “You can’t look into the future. You have to live in the moment. The main goal for me is that I’ve got five heats to make a semi-final. Once I make the semi-final, I’ve then got to make the final. Once I’ve made the final, as long as I don’t finish last, I don’t really care where I finish because I’ve scored points.

“I hate fourth, that’s like a proper kick in the teeth. But I’m always just focused on making the semis, that’s the reality of it. You have to just focus on one step at a time before you can think about the final.

“That’s just reality, the fact. You can’t think about the final, if you’re not in the semis. So you have to deal with it step by step, that’s the only way.”
