WACKY Tai Woffinden has vowed to go NAKED if he wins his first-ever British Grand Prix.
The three-time world champion admits he needs a big win at the Principality Stadium on Saturday night to ignite his fourth title charge.
Woffy, 31, is currently sixth in the standings and 28 points behind leader Bartosz Zmarzlik but believes he can chase down the Pole with five rounds to go.
He revealed: “Things are going good, I’m looking forward to seeing the British fans and getting after it.
“I’ve always been happy with finals, that’s how you win world titles. But the goalposts have changed now.
“I need to make up points at the top of the championship which means I need to be on the top step in Cardiff.”

GP Danish rival Anders Thomsen stripped down to his undies after winning in Gorzow, Poland in the last round – but Woffinden will go further.
He added: “I’d do it better than him, fully naked for me obviously!
“I’ve done it before in Poland. I stripped off for a photo shoot in a speedway meeting. Why not?
"It would be an epic win in front of the British fans who I love so much. I’d make it a moment to remember forever in the sport.”

Woffinden has been flying since a mid-season break which he turned into a gruelling fitness schedule.
He said: “I feel very good. I’ve been away for a few days on a mini training camp.
“I covered 404km on my bike, 18 hours or training and 10,000 metres of climbing.
“I’ve felt 100 per cent all year apart from the injury to my rib in the early stages and the training injury during the Speedway of Nations.
"But right now I feel in great condition and ready for the rest of the season. It’s the business end now.”
Woffinden will face fierce competition from his own British rivals Robert Lambert, Dan Bewley and Adam Ellis in front of the biggest speedway crowd of fans in the UK this season – expected to be 40,000.
He added: “I’ve made some big changes this year machinery-wise. People just expect you to bolt an engine in and go like f***.
