Double world champion Tai Woffinden has vowed to keep his bid for a third world title going right until the final round in Australia.

The Great Britain star insists he’s still in a good place despite managing just five points in the IPONE German FIM Speedway Grand Prix on Saturday, which saw him slip to fifth spot.

More significantly, he’s now 20 points behind series leader Jason Doyle, but Woffy refuses to throw in the towel.

I’ll keep fighting because the title won’t be decided until Melbourne in my view.

“I’ll keep fighting because the title won’t be decided until Melbourne in my view,” said Woffinden. “It was disappointing for me at the weekend and I know where I went wrong with the setup. I’ll be making sure that doesn’t happen again.

“The title race will be wide open as the top guys all take points off each other. And when you see how Matej Zagar and Chris Holder did in Teterow, you’ve got guys lower down the order racing well now too.

“It only takes one bad round and you slip down the table. Then you can bounce back and have a couple of good rounds and you can be right back in there, and that’s my plan.

“I’m still feeling good about my racing, I’ve been going well in Poland and Sweden and I’m ready for the three remaining rounds now.”

Next up is the Stockholm SGP at Friends Arena on September 23, with the SGP action moving to Torun on October 7 and concluding with the QBE Insurance Australian SGP at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium on October 28.

Woffinden said: “I like all three venues, Stockholm, Torun and Melbourne and I’ll be going into all three with a positive attitude. I’ll be determined but relaxed at the same time, if you see what I mean?

“I’ve got some busy days ahead and I want to say a massive thank you once again to all my sponsors, my team and my fans. It’s appreciated, believe me.”
