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.

Double world champion Tai Woffinden is aiming to keep his Slovenian love affair going this weekend. Woffinden launches his bid for a third title in the Aztorin Slovenian FIM Speedway Grand Prix on Saturday in the Matije Gubca Stadium, Krsko.

He has an impressive record there having reached the final in the last two seasons after a night of high scoring power.

“I’ve had some good meetings around there and I’m really looking forward to Saturday,” he said. “I have done all my preparation, I’ve worked hard and have covered everything in the build-up to the new season. “I feel good and my bikes feel good, I’ve done the odd meeting and the testing in Poland and I’m looking forward to it. “Krsko is a big, fast track and it should be a great meeting for the fans. I’ve got to look to get to the semi-final minimum each round, starting on Saturday.”


He’s not worried by a lack of racing after the postponement of his first league outing in Poland. “The time I’ve had on the bike has been good for me,” he said. “I’m comfortable with everything. “I’ve also spent extra time training and it’s nice to have spent some time at home back in the UK. “But now the season starts properly and I’m ready for it.”

Woffinden will also have a familiar face back in his pit corner with a welcome return for mentor Peter Adams after a year out. Said Woffinden: “I think that year break from it was good for our working relationship, we never fell out or anything like that, it was just good to do something different. “I talked to Pete mid-way through last season and when I had the opportunity to ride for him again at Wolverhampton it was nice to be working with him again. “He’s refreshed and ready to go again this year and I’m personally delighted to have him back as part of my team. “Pete has a lot of experience down the years and he’s very organised, his presence will benefit me in a big way at the Grand Prix.”
