Tai Woffinden today admitted clinching the speedway World Championship would “mean everything”.
The Wolves star – who was 500-1 to win at the start of the season – needs just six points to be crowned champion in Poland tonight. Victory would see him become the first British winner for 13 years.
“It means everything and to be world champion is every speedway rider’s goal,” he said, ahead of the GP in Torun.
“To come in as a wild card and to be given the opportunity is amazing. I’ve done everything I can do to put me in this situation.”
It is Woffinden’s second shot at the World Championship after his debut season in 2010 where he finished 14th with just 49 points and tragically lost his father Rob to cancer.
He said: “In 2010 everything which could have gone wrong did go wrong. It was a tough year for me but I have corrected things this year.”
