Tai Woffinden racked up a near-perfect score in Poland as he ended his self-imposed exile from Great Britain’s speedway team.

The Wolverhampton asset registered 38 out of a possible 39 points at the FIM Speedway of Nations Final.

But Britain had to settle for silver in a dramatic last gasp final shootout with Russia – despite having finished the tournament as top scorers.

Double world individual champion Woffinden inspired the side straight through to the one-off final with a stunning display, winning 12 of his 13 outings over the two nights in Wroclaw.

Woffy said: “It’s disappointing to miss out at the end but that’s the way the competition works and we have to settle for silver. But this is the first stage of a five-year plan for GB and whilst Rob Painter (team supremo) is making all the right noises I’ll be alongside him.”
