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.

WOFFY DONE GOOD YET AGAIN!

TERRIFIC Tai Woffinden blasted it’s “too early” to talk about the world title despite roaring to his second Grand Prix win of the season.

The Scunthorpe-born sizzler was back to his very best at a blazing hot Horsens in Denmark, winning the final from Artem Laguta and Greg Hancock.

Woffinden, 27, was at his most devastating with several clever bursts from the back in a swashbuckling display which moves him 10 points clear at the top of the standings.

He revealed: “It’s been a good event, the track was pretty gnarly late on. I said yesterday if the track’s gnarly I’ll love it because I feel like I come into my own when the track’s really rough. It’s separates the boys from the men.

“All in all a great night. Thanks to all the fans for giving me a good cheer especially the British fans that are out here. That one’s for you Rylee.

“It’s a 10-point lead. But it’s only 10 points and it’s too early to be worrying about the championship

“I just watched them carry the trophy over here and I want my name on it at the end of the year.”

Woffy overtook Freddie Lindgren at the top of the standings after the Swede endured a disappointing night, missing out on the semi-finals.

The former Wolves No.1 touched the tapes in one race and then saw his semi place snatched away when Woffinden passed him on the last lap of the qualifying heats.

Woffinden added: “It’s obviously nice to win Grand Prix rounds. The most important thing for me is that I’m consistent throughout the night and scoring points. All those points add up at the end of the year.

“The ultimate goal is obviously to be world champion. The track was tricky today. The rougher these tracks get the more I enjoy them.

“I hope Cardiff is a bit rough and we’ll see where we go from there!

“Sweden is next and it’s usually quite slick but I’m sure they’ll work hard on it to make it fair for everybody.

“Massive thanks to my sponsors and everyone at home, loads of love to Faye and Rylee and can’t wait to see you in a few days.”
