Double world champion Tai Woffinden is hoping to continue his Swedish love affair at the Teng Tools Swedish FIM Speedway Grand Prix in Malilla on Saturday night.

The Great Britain star says his league form for Masarna in the Swedish Elitserien has given him confidence for his World Championship programme.

Woffinden, who arrives at the G&B Arena sixth in the standings on 57 points, said: “I’m loving riding in Sweden this year and the move to Masarna has worked out great for me.

I need to start scoring double figures more consistently and see where that gets me before the final round in Melbourne.

“I’d like to be back there next year if we can sort something out. They’ve made me welcome and I look forward to Tuesday nights and racing in Sweden. Hopefully I can keep my form going in Malilla on Saturday.”

Woffinden, winner of the 2014 Swedish SGP in Malilla, has revealed how he is continually working on his machinery to give himself the best chance of success.

“I’ve been trying a couple of new engines,” he said. “I don’t stop where that is concerned. I’m always looking at my machinery with my team, trying to be as fast as possible and that will continue for the rest of the season.”

Woffinden admits he would like to climb the SGP ladder, but is still fairly pleased with his season. “It has gone alright but I guess it could have been better,” he said. “But we’re only halfway through the series so it’s time to step it up.

“I like the Malilla track. It’s a great race track and I’m looking forward to this weekend. I need to start scoring double figures more consistently and see where that gets me before the final round in Melbourne.

“As always I want to thank my team, sponsors and all my fans out there.

"They really are awesome and the reception I got at Cardiff last month was pretty special.”
