MOTORSPORT: Speedway star Tai visits Bicester
11:00am Thursday 19th September 2013 in Sport
World speedway championhip leader Tai Woffinden came to the Bicester area last week when he paid a visit to his sponsors NJF Shopfitting.
Back in 2012, the 25-year-old, who races for Wolverhampton, was looking for a sponsorship to be able to compete in the Grand Prix of 2013.
The firm, who are based in Somerton, decided to back the young Australian in his dream to ride for his country and hearing how he struggled after losing his father in 2010.
This year Woffinden has won the British title and also stormed to victory in his first Grand Prix victory in Prague.
However, in June, he broke his collar bone in the British Grand Prix, which needed an operation.
Woffinden is 20 points clear of second-placed Emil Sayfutdinov, with two rounds to go.
He is next in action in Stockholm on Saturday when he could clinch the world crown.
