Engines roar into action at 17:00pm this Saturday for round 4 of the 2015 Adrian Flux British FIM Speedway Grand Prix, held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Rock supported rider Tai Woffinden will be looking to continue his point dominance in the biggest event on the speedway calendar. Leading the World Championship standings on 40 points, there's sure to be a Great British welcome in a stadium that can take over 62,000 speedway fans.
Tai has achieved fantastic results this year representing England in the Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup along with winning (and retaining) his British Championship title. Currently he's the bookmakers favourite but Tai is treating like another day on the track: “It’s another Grand Prix and another opportunity to score some points as far as I’m concerned. I’m just treating it the same as any other GP, although of course it will be different because it’s the British round, my home round.
“I’m not putting any pressure on myself going into the meeting, I’m just looking forward to it and I will give it my all.”
Joining Tai at Cardiff will be another Rock rider; Craig Cook, taking the wild card spot at number 16. Craig narrowly lost out to Tai at Monmore Green in Wolverhampton last month. Craig was looking in top form initially leading in first place, but sadly the race had to be restarted when another rider crashed out. In the re-run Woffinden made no mistake and finished ahead of Cook. Although thankfully the result still meant that Cook secured his wildcard spot for this coming Saturday.
Working through the line-up for Saturday's event, fellow rock Riders Chris 'Bomber' Harris (ranking 11th with 18 points so far), Matej Žagar (ranking 5th position with 24 points) and Troy Batchelor (ranking 14th with 13 points) will be joining the fray. Chris was the first Brit in seven years to win a Speedway Grand Prix back in 2007, and the first to do so inside the Millennium Stadium.
