Chris Harris handed Fogo British FIM Speedway Grand Prix wild card

Posted:

Chris Harris has been handed the wild card for the Fogo British FIM Speedway Grand Prix at Cardiff‰Ûªs Millennium Stadium on June 1 to see if he can repeat his epic win of 2007.

Harris exploded into the limelight in the Welsh capital six years ago, when he stormed past Aussie great Leigh Adams and triple world champion Jason Crump, before diving under double world champion Greg Hancock on the last bend to win one of the most epic finals in the SGP series‰Ûª 18-year history.

The Team Great Britain skipper, who spent six straight seasons as a full-time SGP rider from 2007 to 2012, is determined to steal in-form international colleague Tai Woffinden‰Ûªs thunder in Cardiff when dons the famous No.16 race jacket.

Woffinden has become the darling of the British fans this season after reaching his maiden Grand Prix final in Bydgoszcz on April 20, which put him fourth in the World Championship standings.

But Bomber is determined to thrust himself back into the limelight on world speedway‰Ûªs biggest stage.

‰ÛÏTai is having a fantastic year and looking at what he‰Ûªs doing, he‰Ûªs probably the best rider around at the minute." Said Harris. "He‰Ûªs flying and he‰Ûªs the man.

"But if I can go there and outshine him at Cardiff, it would be nice and very satisfying, just to show I‰Ûªm still here and remind people not to forget about me.

‰ÛÏIt would be nice to go there and win it. This time around, I go there with no pressure. I‰Ûªm not in the series and no-one is going to be looking at me as a contender to win it. I‰Ûªll go there and enjoy the weekend and hopefully get the best result I can.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm very happy to have been given the call. I‰Ûªm obviously disappointed not to be in the Grand Prix full-time, but it‰Ûªs a great honour to be asked for this one. I‰Ûªd like to thank BSI Speedway and the FIM for giving me the opportunity to get back in it for Cardiff.‰Û
