NEWLY crowned World Champion Tai Woffinden says Monday’s NGK Spark Plugs Olympique at Wolverhampton will be ‘cool to watch.’

The long running individual event is unique as it uses the handicap format where riders who win a race start from further back in their next outing.

And Woffinden, Britain’s greatest rider in history after his third world title in Poland just a week ago, will be guest of honour to enjoy the racing.

“I’m looking forward to watching it,” he said. “It’s a good format because it encourages riders to pass and it’s a really cool thing to watch.”

Woffinden has won two league titles in Wolverhampton colours and has shot the sport into the national spotlight on TV, Radio, online and print with his achievement.

Wolverhampton duo Sam Masters and Kyle Howarth are included in the field and both will be looking to lay a marker down with Parrys International Wolves bosses for a team spot next season.

There’s also an appearance from hot American prospect Luke Becker, a protégé of four-times World Champion Greg Hancock, who is looking for a team place in the UK in 2019. One of Hancock’s bikes will also be on display.;

Poole play-off heroes Chris Harris and Nicolai Klindt, who won the Grand Final in stunning style in front of thousands of fans at King’s Lynn and on TV last Wednesday, are also racing.

The club are also hosting their traditional end of season firework display at the end of the meeting to bring the curtain down on the season – and there will be a rider farewell party in the lower bar afterwards.

“It all promises to be a terrific evening,” said promoter Chris Van Straaten. “We look forward to welcoming everyone for the last action of the year at Monmore.”
