In 2015 I won my second world title, my first was in 2013, and I’m the current British Champion too. I race domestically across Europe in Poland and Sweden, in the FIM Speedway Grand Prix Series and for Team GB in the Monster Energy Speedway World Cup, where I’m team captain.

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 WORLD NO.2

TAI Woffinden has revealed how he stayed calm when the pressure was on in the race for world championship silver. The British-born star, who spent his childhood in Australia, was back in Melbourne for the final Grand Prix of the season at the weekend. SGP icon Greg Hancock was crowned world champion for a fourth time but quit the meeting after a controversial decision to exclude him from Heat 9. And Polish sensation Bartosz Zmarzlik pushed Woffinden all the way for silver in the absence of unlucky injury victim Jason Doyle. But Woffinden did enough to claim second place overall after concentrating on his own racing with no thoughts on his rivals. "Melbourne was no different to any other Grand Prix, I was just focussed on my own level of performance and my own racing," he said. "I'm always focussed on myself and nobody else. Whatever the other guys are doing that's down to them, I just concentrate on what I do and hope that's enough to beat them. "I had some good racing and well done to the other guys but during a meeting it's all about what I do.





"All I will add is congrats to Chris Holder on winning the meeting and to Greg Hancock on winning a fourth world title, a mind-blowing achievement!" Woffy admits he has to be happy with second in the world after a tricky year. He said: "When I look back at the season overall I have to be happy with a silver medal. "Considering how it went for me, I wasn't happy with my performance for various reasons, I'm really happy to get silver and it gives me something to build on for next year." And he's thanked the fans for their support. "Riding in Melbourne was like a second home Grand Prix to me, it was amazing again and thanks to all the fans who turned out," he said. "I'm now going to spend time catching up with friends and family so I'm looking forward to that. "Thanks again to all my fans for their support throughout the year."
