BIRMINGHAM 50 WOLVES 43

Thursday March 22, 2012
TAI Woffinden put on a Perry Barr masterclass as Wolverhampton gained encouragement from Thursday’s Midland League match after a tough week.

Parrys International Wolves went down by seven points against a solid Birmingham team, but Woffinden was in outstanding form, romping to four straight wins after falling on the second bend of Heat 4.

And the Great Britain international also pulled off one of the moves of the night when he rounded both Sebastian Ulamek and Bjarne Pedersen in blistering style to win Heat 13.

Elsewhere, Freddie Lindgren was sound at the top and collected a six-point haul in Heat 11 by racing through from last to first to combine with Pontus Aspgren, who enjoyed his best display of the week and deserved his paid-seven score.

Nicolai Klindt won his first ride with Wolves well in touch for the first half of the meeting, although Brummies 5-1s in Heats 8 and 10 left them requiring the tactical ride facility.

The teams traded maximum advantages in the closing stages of the meeting, and the Woffinden/Lindgren duo was in full force to ensure Wolves finished on a high with a Heat 15 5-1.

Boss Peter Adams said: “I thought it was a much better performance from us. In Woffinden we had the outstanding rider in the meeting, and Freddie was a force, but overall it was much more encouraging.

“I think with a bit more rub of the green we could have got a bit closer, but we’re quite
encouraged by what we’ve seen here, and there was some skilful riding by Pontus too.”

BIRMINGHAM 50: Josh Auty 12+1, Sebastian Ulamek 9, Ben Barker 8+1, Bjarne Pedersen 8, Martin Smolinski 5+3, Danny King 5+2, Chris Mills 3+1.

WOLVERHAMPTON 43: Freddie Lindgren 14+1, Tai Woffinden 12, Nicolai Klindt 7, Pontus Aspgren 5+2, Lukasz Sowka 2, Thomas Jorgensen 2, Ty Proctor 1+1.
