WOLVERHAMPTON moved to the top of Speedway's Elite League table with a comprehensive 59-34 triumph over Eastbourne Eagles at Monmore Green.

Nine 5-1s on the night including three in the opening four races saw Wolves cruise to victory and gain their sixth win out of seven in 2013.

No.1 Tai Woffinden capped off a wonderful weekend with another paid maximum, whilst GP colleague Fredrik Lindgren's only defeat came following an exclusion for a first bend spill in heat seven.

Swedish reserves Ludvig Lindgren and Jacob Thorssell again impressed - the latter bagging three paid wins on his way to a hard-fought 7+3.

Middle order men Ricky Wells and Adam Skonicki also performed solidly - yet the star of the show was Aussie racer Ty Proctor who only let a maximum slip in a well deserved heat fifteen appearance.

And after the meeting, Proctor was in jubilant mood.

He said: "I obviously feel disappointed with heat fifteen, but overall I was really happy with my performance tonight.

"The team is working really well and it was another great win for us as well, so I'm really happy."

WOLVERHAMPTON 59: Tai Woffinden 14+1, Ty Proctor 10+2, Ludvig Lindgren 8+1, Jacob Thorssell 7+3, Fredrik Lindgren 7+2, Ricky Wells 7+1, Adam Skornicki 6.

EASTBOURNE 34: Rory Schlein 11, Cameron Woodward 8+1, Lukas Dryml 4, Simon Gustafsson 3+1, Adam Shields 3+1, Denis Gizatulin 3, Timo Lahti 2.
