TAI Woffinden is officially back to his best… that’s the view of Wolverhampton Speedway boss Peter Adams!

Woffinden enjoyed a 17-point haul as Parrys International Wolves got the better of Birmingham 51-39 in a hard fought Midland League clash at Monmore on Monday.

It was their first win of the season and Woffinden was only denied a perfect score with defeat in the last race.

Said Adams: “I believe there is a group of British riders like Danny King and Ben Barker of Birmingham who are under-rated.

“I include Woffinden in that and he is the pick of the bunch, he is back to his best form, it’s great to see.

“We’re delighted with this victory, I’m fairly encouraged going forward although we need to work hard on Lukas Sowka because he’s finding it tough and you can see the confidence sapping away from him.”

Crashes dominated the early stages, the most dramatic when Barker fell in Heat 3 and took King and Nicolai Klindt with him, the Dane doing well to lay his machine down in avoidance.

With Sebastian Ulamek looking sluggish, Wolves took control with a 5-1 from Woffinden and Ricky Wells in Heat 4 - the only time Josh Auty missed out in his first four outings.

Wolves gradually opened their lead, Woffinden superbly passing King to win Heat 11, and when Auty was eclipsed by Wells and Nicolai Klindt in the next, the home side were virtually home and dry.

WOLVERHAMPTON 51: Tai Woffinden 17, Ty Proctor 11, Nicolai Klindt 9+2, Ricky Wells 8+2, Pontus Aspgren 6+1, Lukasz Sowka 0, Freddie Lindgren r/r.

BIRMINGHAM 39: Josh Auty 12, Danny King 11+1, Ben Barker 7, Martin Smolinski 4+1, Sebastian Ulamek 4, Chris Mills 1, Bjarne Pedersen r/r.
