Great Britain racer Tai Woffinden admits it was “job done” as leads the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series by 11 points going into the Adrian Flux British SGP in Cardiff later this month.

The Scunthorpe-born ace finished fourth in the Norrbil Swedish SGP in Hallstavik, but still ended on 16 points – extending his World Championship lead over nearest rival Freddie Lindgren to 11.

Polish racer Maciej Janowski won the final ahead of Lindgren and Bartosz Zmarzlik, with Woffy missing out of the podium.

While the double world champ was gutted to miss out on the champagne celebrations, he was content to boost his series lead.

He said: “We came here to score points. Unfortunately in the final I didn’t get on the podium. There’s nothing worse than coming last in the final. It’s actually the worst of the worst.

“But I came here to do a job and score points and I extended my lead by one point, so in my eyes job done.”

Woffy is now looking forward to enjoying the roar of his home crowd as he chases his first ever Adrian Flux British SGP victory at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on July 21.

He said: “The British fans always make Cardiff very special. It’s always the highlight of the year so I can’t wait to get there.”
