SGP Five Facts brings you five things you may not know about the FIM Speedway Grand Prix class of 2017. Today it’s Tai Woffinden.

1. What a difference three years makes! Woffinden made his SGP debut in the 2010 FIM Speedway World Championship, exiting after finishing 14th overall in a year which saw him lose his father and mentor Rob to cancer. But the Brit showed extraordinary steel and character to bounce back and defy odds of 500/1 to win the 2013 world title.

2. He became Britain’s joint most successful rider in the FIM Speedway World Championship when he won title No.2 in 2015, with only Peter Craven and Welsh star Freddie Williams joining him in GB’s double world champions club.

3. Woffy is also the youngest rider to lift the World Championship in the SGP era since 1995, winning in 2013 aged 23 years and 56 days.

4. The 26-year-old has six SGP victories to his name, with three of them coming at Prague’s Marketa Stadium as he topped the Czech SGP rostrum three years running from 2013 to 2015.

5. Woffinden has made 24 SGP final appearances over four seasons since returning to the series in 2013. A third of those came on his way to title No.2 in 2015, when he reached eight.
