Steve Worrall believes he needs to win the Championship Riders’ title in Glasgow on Saturday to prove he can live in the fastlane.

The former Edinburgh Monarchs racer, who is now with Newcastle Diamonds, has burst onto the Team Great Britain scene and top scored for them in the World Cup final.

But after two successive years of finishing runner-up in the British title, Worrall now believes he has to win the Championship meeting at Glasgow to prove himself.

He said: “I know that folk didn’t expect me to do as well as I did in the World Cup. I probably surprised myself.

“But I do believe it’s important that I stamp my authority and win a meeting like this (the Championship Riders) to really make people sit up and take notice.

“I don’t think people will be thinking as me as one of the favourites for Saturday night but that suits me.

“I go quietly about my business, I don’t need to go shouting from the rooftops about what I can do.”

The 26-year-old is the younger twin brother of Glasgow ace Richie by two minutes.

He added: “I’ll need to beat him on Saturday night just to make sure I can win the brotherly bragging rights.”

Worrall has also revealed a win at Glasgow would be the ideal springboard for a Grand Prix bid in 2018 and he confirmed: “My big aim for next year is the Grand Prix.”
