Triple world champion Tai Woffinden continued his red-hot form ahead of Saturday’s Boll Warsaw SGP, romping to a 15-point maximum as Indianerna triumphed 50-40 at home to Lejonen in the Swedish Elitserien on Tuesday.

Hot on the heels of leading Great Britain through to the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Finals, Woffy went unbeaten over five rides in Kumla.

He was brilliantly backed up by 11 paid 12 from Danish star Kenneth Bjerre and seven paid nine from Chris Holder. Polish duo Jaroslaw Hampel and Krzysztof Kasprzak were Lions’ top scorers on 10 apiece.

Elsewhere, Swedish duo Antonio Lindback and Kim Nilsson weighed in with 13 points each for Masarna as they stunned champions Smederna with an unlikely 47-43 win in Eskilstuna.

Nilsson powered to 13 paid 15, with skipper Lindback adding 13 paid 14. Russian racer Vadim Tarasenko tallied 10 paid 12. World No.3 Freddie Lindgren led the home side’s scoring on 14 points from five.

Impressive hauls from Danish duo Mikkel Michelsen and Niels-Kristian Iversen were not enough to save Piraterna from a 51-39 loss away to Dackarna.

Michelsen roared to 16 points from six, while Iversen accrued 12 paid 13. But the depleted Malilla men held firm as Oliver Berntzon led the way on 11 paid 13 and new signing Vaclav Milik added 10 paid 11. Polish star Patryk Dudek scored eight paid 10.

In the day’s other meeting, triple world champion Nicki Pedersen raced to 11 paid 12 for Vastervik as they won 53-37 away to Rospiggarna. He was supported by a straight 11 from Krzysztof Buczkowski and nine paid 13 from Aussie racer Jack Holder.

Former world No.2 Andreas Jonsson scored 15 for the hosts, who were missing the injured Jason Doyle. Robert Lambert picked up seven paid 10 and Max Fricke registered a straight seven.
