    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    I believe one of the reasons Ole was an advocate of the GP series is he felt he had been disadvantaged in the world championship by being, for most of his career, the only Dane in the field. He saw Gps as reducing the opportunities for collusion. I'm sure there were other reasons as well why Ole wanted a series...

    I'd be amazed if Zmarzlik isn't the next Polish world champion, and in the next few years.

    Don't forget Bruce Penhall allegedly paying off -hmm, Jri Stancl, to allow Bruce to beat him and claim world title number 2

    Yet in 1994 after 3 rides, T Rick was in 6TH! equal and 3 points off the lead. And won it!

    But the reality was you needed 12 or 13... I remember the PC farewell meeting and Les scored 10 But finished outside the top 6 who made the final

    Tbh i dont see it as a flaw. Its about getting the most points, regardless of how you do it

    That was the 82ic final. And actually he waved for Gundersen to pull over to let Bo Petersen through

    Swap Dryml and Hancock in ht6 And all 15 except the winner have a heat win.

    And of course a final where over half the field had nothing to race for at the half way mark. Or qualifiers where when you reached the last 4 heats riders had nothing to race for... Off the top of my head I can think of 81 overseas final, 82 overseas final, 82 ic final, 84 ic final, 91(?) overseas final (Sam letting Hancock pass). Plus the Collins brothers team riding in the 82 overseas final. And tgese are not the incidents with money changing hands, just "favoyrs" for compatriots Whereas in the gp series I can only think of the hancock/holder case, where Hancock got rightly excludes, neutralizing the impact of his action.

    You know, it is possible for Woffy to win on 9 without winning a heat... Swap Woffy and Vaculik in ht3. Madsen and ward in ht6. Pedersen and puk in ht8

    Or be world champ without ever making a semi final!

    Droppimg from the lead after heat 8 was common: 1980 final had Penhall and Thomsen tied for the lead with Lee. Neither made the podium. 81 Jessup was tied for first, didnt make the rostrum, likewise Carter in 82, Ermolenko 88, Tatum 89.
