In 2018, I won my THIRD World Title, second in 2015 and the very first was in 2013. I also 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.

WORLD CHAMP TO MEET NORTHERN FANS

BRITAIN’S Speedway icon Tai Woffinden has kept a promise – by agreeing to meet fans after winning his third world title.

Woffinden became the first GB rider in history to complete a triple swoop of the sport’s ultimate prize in a breathtaking finish to the title race in Poland last October.

He has thousands of fans throughout Europe and now he is ready to hit the road and mix with fans ahead of the new season.

The Scunthorpe born racer will be at Berwick for a second successive year on Friday March 1 and the evening is already sold out – and he’s now confirmed appearances at Workington’s Railway Club the following night and Scunthorpe Speedway Club for an afternoon event on March 2 (2pm).

“I said when I met fans last winter that I’d go out and do it again if I won the world title so I’m keeping my promise,” he said.

“I enjoy these occasions because I’m relaxed, informal and I talk to fans as though we are all just mates in a pub. I tell it how it is, I give my opinion on things and I’m very passionate about what I do.

“I’m looking forward to going back to see the great people of Berwick, then to Workington who I know had a great season last year and then it will be extra special for me to go back to Scunny, the club my Dad and me both raced for.”

Woffinden is currently in Australia preparing for a meeting in memory of his father, the Rob Woffinden Classic – and he won the Western Australia State title at the weekend.

And when he returns to his UK base he will step up preparations for the European season which includes the launch of his world title defence – he’s never won it back-to-back – in Warsaw, Poland, on May 18.

Tickets are selling fast already for Workington and Scunthorpe after they went on sale on Monday night and a capacity crowd is expected at both venues.

Tickets are available online at at Sports Talk Events.
