Woffy’s coming home – get your tickets!
SCUNTHORPE-BORN speedway legend Tai Woffinden will be meeting fans at the Scunthorpe’s Eddie Wright Raceway in March.
‘An Afternoon With Tai Woffinden’ will take place in the clubhouse at the track on Sunday, March 3, and tickets are now available at just £12 each.
Woffinden became the first GB rider in history to complete a triple swoop of the sport’s ultimate prize in a breathtaking finish to the title race in Poland last October.
The triple World Champion was born in Scunthorpe in 1990, before parents Rob and Sue took him over to Australia for his upbringing. He returned to Britain, and started his professional speedway career with Scunthorpe Scorpions, winning the Conference League and a myriad of other honours in 2006 and 2007. He later rode for Rye House and Wolverhampton, and these days competes in the Polish and Swedish leagues. His previous World Championships came in 2013 and 2015.
Woffinden said: “It will be extra special for me to go back to Scunny, the club my Dad and me both raced for.
“I enjoy these occasions because I’m relaxed, informal and I talk to fans as though we are all just mates in a pub.
“I tell it how it is, I give my opinion on things and I’m very passionate about what I do.”
Woffinden will also visit Berwick on March 1 and Workington on March 2.
He is currently in Australia preparing for a meeting in memory of his father, the Rob Woffinden Classic – and he won the Western Australia State title at the weekend.
And when he returns to his UK base he will step up preparations for the European season which includes the launch of his world title defence – he’s never won it back-to-back – in Warsaw, Poland, on May 18.
