Rock supported rider Tai Woffinden has secured his third consecutive British Final title, winning four out of five heats at Monmore Green earlier this week.
At first the 24-year-old was trailing in the Grand Final, with fellow Rock rider Craig Cook leading in first place. But a crash caused another rider to fall on the second lap, meaning that the race had to be stopped and re-run. Tai made the most of his second chance leading right from the start, ultimately winning the trophy for the third time in a row. With Cook finishing as runner-up to Woffinden for the second year running.
Woffinden said: “I was pretty lucky to get the re-run because I made hash of the first one but that's the nature of the sport and I won the race that mattered most.
“I've been working really hard this year and it's great to see that it's paying off just lately.
“The fans were great with me once again and it was real good to be back at Wolverhampton.”
British Speedway Chairman Alex Harkess had this to say on the events of the evening: “As always, the 2015 Final had everything and it was a really great race meeting.
“The riders gave it their all and the huge crowd were treated to some great speedway.
“Our congratulations go to Tai Woffinden on another great achievement and I actually feel for Craig Cook after originally leading the final but he'll be delighted to be going to Cardiff.
“Overall it was another really good event but our thoughts are with Ben Barker after that really nasty incident in Heat 1.”
