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.

WOFFINDEN WANTS MORE WORLD GLORY

TAI Woffinden has vowed to continue ‘doing what I love’ – by chasing more world titles!

Scunthorpe born Woffinden created history at the weekend by claiming a third championship in six seasons and has now become the greatest British rider of all-time.

And he said: “I want to keep on winning world championships.

“I love doing what I do and it’s pretty amazing when you look at what I’ve achieved in the last six years.

“I was the youngest ever World Champion when I won it the first time in 2013 and now I’m the youngest ever to win three and the first British rider to do it. I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved.”

Woffinden has offered his congratulations to the two rider who pushed him all the way in the title race this year.

Polish superstar Bartosz Zmarzlik and Swede Freddie Lindgren, a former team-mate at Wolverhampton, claimed silver and bronze respectively.

“They pushed me hard and congratulations to Bartek and Freddie on a good season,” he said.

Woffinden, 28, had refused to give any interviews in the build-up to Torun and the deciding round in the title battle at the weekend.

But his relief when crossing the line was clear after carrying the pressure of leading the championship for so long.

“What an amazing weekend that was!” he said.

“It’s been by far the best weekend of my life in terms of racing.

“To win the world title, to win the Grand Prix and then to win Tomasz Gollob’s meeting just rounded it all off. It doesn’t get any better than that.

“I need to savour the moment because you never know what the future holds, it may never happen again!

“I want to thank all my sponsors, you all know who you are and I really appreciate you.

“My team Jack, Konrad, Robson and Leszek always do the best job they possibly can with the bikes and without them I wouldn’t be where I am today, plus my engine tuners Richard and Daniel Kowalski who have kept me fast all year.

“Pete Adams has been by my side again and I thank him for that, the respect I have for that guy is immense.

“My wife Faye and my daughter Rylee-Cru are my inspiration and they see me at my high and low points. It was awesome to have them at Torun when I won the title because they also saw me feeling pretty down after a bad round in Slovenia.

“Thanks also to my mum who has always been there for me, along with Faye’s mum and dad, Sean and Tracy for helping me through.

“Finally, thanks to my fans – much love!”
