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.

TAI WOFFINDEN – SGP PREVIEW

TAI Woffinden insists he’s still below his best – but he’s getting there! The double world champion takes his place in the Rietumu Bank Latvian FIM Speedway Grand Prix in Daugavpils on Saturday on the back of a good run of form in both the Polish and Swedish Leagues.

He heads to the Lokomitiv Stadium on the back of a stunning 13+1 for Masarna in their thrilling 45-45 draw at Dackarna on Tuesday – 48-hours after he notched 10+1 for Wroclaw in their 50-40 win at Grudziadz. “I’m getting better with every meeting and feeling good on the bike,” he said.

“The reflexes at the start have always been there this season, but it’s all about the sharpness to get to the first turn ahead and to remember the right lines to ride.

“It’s coming together nicely for me now but I still don’t feel I’m there totally on top of my game. “I tried a new engine from Johnsy (Peter Johns) in Poland on Sunday and it felt sweet, it went really well for me.”

Woffinden heads into the Grand Prix in sixth place in the championship – but only six-points behind Jason Doyle who is second. He said: “I’ve been steady in the world championship so far and there’s plenty to build on, the foundations are there.

“I like the Daugavpils track, it’s fast and I’m looking forward to it, I can’t wait actually. “It’s a good thing when you’re excited about going racing and that’s the case with me going in there this weekend.”
