TAI WOFFINDEN ENJOYED THE PERFECT WARM-UP FOR SATURDAY’S ADRIAN FLUX BRITISH SGP AFTER CRUISING TO A 15-POINT MAXIMUM FOR MASARNA.
Double world champion Tai Woffinden enjoyed the perfect warm-up for Saturday’s Adrian Flux British SGP after cruising to a 15-point maximum for Masarna in the Swedish Elitserien on Tuesday.
Woffy went unbeaten over five rides in Kumla, but it wasn’t enough to save his side from a 46-44 loss away to Indianerna.
The Brit could still be happy with his night’s work, though, and heads to Cardiff in red-hot form as he aims to extend his 11-point World Championship lead.
Woffinden was aided by 11 points from Masarna team mate Antonio Lindback. But 11 paid 12 from Indians’ Adrian Miedzinski inspired the hosts to a slender win, with Vaclav Milik tallying 10.
Elsewhere, Russian racer Artem Laguta continued his recent hot streak with 13 points for Vetlanda, winning heat 15 to secure his team a vital 46-44 win away to local rivals Dackarna.
Polish star Bartosz Zmarzlik backed him up on 10 points, while Leon Madsen picked up nine paid 10.
Last year’s Cardiff winner Maciej Janowski topped the Dackarna scorechart on 10, while Patryk Dudek added eight paid 10 and Greg Hancock recorded a straight eight.
Danish icon Nicki Pedersen raced to 13 points for Vastervik, leading partner Peter Kildemand to a 5-1 in a last-heat decider as they pipped Lejonen 46-44 in Gislaved. Australian champion Rohan Tungate topped Lions scorechart with a fantastic 14 paid 15-point maximum, while compatriot Chris Holder scored six.
In the day’s other meeting, a sensational 17 points from Jason Doyle wasn’t enough to rescue Rospiggarna from a 54-36 loss away to Smederna.
SGP first reserve Niels-Kristian Iversen roared back into form for the Eskilstuna outfit on 12 paid 13, with Freddie Lindgren recording 11. Michael Jepsen Jensen notched nine paid 10.
