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.

WOFFINDEN SETS STANDARDS HIGH

TAI Woffinden has set himself a target of finishing amongst the world’s elite for the rest of his career. Woffinden, who won the world title in 2013 and 2015, grabbed the bronze medal with an impressive display in the final round of the 2017 championship in Melbourne.

He scored 16-points in the Etihad Stadium to finish on 131 – nine clear of Maciej Janowski – on a night which saw Jason Doyle crowned champion for the first time. Said Woffinden: “I know I’m quite capable of finishing in the top three for the rest of my career, and that’s what I plan to do.

“Crumpy (Jason Crump) did it for 10 years and that’s a goal I want to set myself. I want to win as many as we can along the way, but just being able to be at that level consistently means I’d be able to retire a happy man and say I was one of the best riders in the world over a period of time.




“When you don’t win, you have that desire to kick-on and make sure you start winning again.” Woffinden and wife Faye are expecting their first child this month – and the British racer admits it will be a new part of his life.

“We’ve got a baby on the way soon which is an exciting time and a new chapter in my life,” he said. “I know what I need to do to win so I’ll prepare well this winter as well. “I finished third in the world and I had three or four really bad GPs. It blows my mind that I’m still stood on the podium at the end of it.

“A massive thanks to all my fans, my sponsors and my team – Jacek Trojanowski, Konrad Darwinski, Robert Ruszala, Leszek Wianiewski plus of course Peter Adams for being by my side again. “I’ll go again in 2018 and try and cut out those poor rounds and find the consistency to be back to be the very best in the world.”
