WOLVERHAMPTON star Tai Woffinden suffered last gasp heartbreak in a dramatic British Final at Monmore on Monday.

Woffinden worked hard for a place in the semi-final with 12 points and qualified for the final.

He was leading the race ahead of eventual winner Scott Nicholls when Eddie Kennett lost control and crashed which caused the race to be stopped.

In the rerun Nicholls made no mistake in a brilliant battle Coventry colleague Chris Harris which left Woffinden with the bronze medal.

He said: “I’m not happy about it, I’m so disappointed because I was desperate for that title.

“Fair play to Scotty but I thought I was on my way to the win in the first staging. That’s Speedway and I guess I will have to do it all again next year.”

The meeting served up plenty of entertainment for a bumper crowd in front of the Sky Sports cameras with Nicholls also securing a place in the British Grand Prix at Cardiff as wildcard.

Parrys International Wolves asset Joe Haines was a late call into the meeting and scored 2.

There is more individual action at Monmore on Tuesday when Dudley Heathens host the FAST Golden Hammer which includes club assets Haines and Ashley Morris.

Admission is just £10 for British Final ticket holders, otherwise £12 adults, £7 concessions and children just £1.
