Woffy comes to Worky!
BRITAIN'S Speedway icon Tai Woffinden has kept a promise – by agreeing to meet fans after winning his third world title.
And, amongst the fans he will be meeting are those from Workington when he comes to the town on Saturday 2nd March at 7:30pm as part of a northern tour in between visits to Berwick and his home-town of Scunthorpe.
He will be appearing at Workington Railway Club, with tickets priced at £12 for a standard ticket, whilst a limited number of VIP tickets priced at £25 are also available. These will provide an opportunity to meet with Tai beforehand, have photographs taken with him and a buffet will also be provided as part of the VIP package.
Tickets are available by contacting Laura Morgan (07803 337 971) or online at sportstalkevents.co.uk/bookingoffice
Woffinden became the first GB rider in history to complete a triple swoop of the sport's ultimate prize in a breathtaking finish to the title race in Poland last October.
He has thousands of fans throughout Europe and now he is ready to hit the road and mix with fans ahead of the new season.
The Scunthorpe born racer will be at Berwick for a second successive year on Friday March 1 and the evening is already sold out – and he's now confirmed appearances at Workington's Railway Club the following night and Scunthorpe Speedway Club for an afternoon event on March 3 (2pm).
“I said when I met fans last winter that I'd go out and do it again if I won the world title so I'm keeping my promise,” he said.
“I enjoy these occasions because I'm relaxed, informal and I talk to fans as though we are all just mates in a pub. I tell it how it is, I give my opinion on things and I'm very passionate about what I do.
“I'm looking forward to going back to see the great people of Berwick, then to Workington who I know had a great season last year and then it will be extra special for me to go back to Scunny, the club my Dad and me both raced for.”
Woffinden is currently in Australia preparing for a meeting in memory of his father, the Rob Woffinden Classic – and he won the Western Australia State title at the weekend.
And, when he returns to his UK base he will step up preparations for the European season which includes the launch of his world title defence – he's never won it back-to-back – in Warsaw, Poland, on May 18.
