LEIGH Adams has denied rumours he is set to quit speedway at the end of the season.

The Swindon skipper leads the Elite League table-toppers into their play-off final, second leg against Wolverhampton at Blunsdon on Monday.

He will then hope to end his World Championship campaign on a high in the Polish Grand Prix on October 17.

Adams will almost certainly not gain automatic re-entry for the 2010 series, as he stands 11th with 66 points - 22 points adrift of the top eight.

The Lejonen and Leszno racer could be handed a wild card for next season, although Adams says he would not want to ride on in the Grand Prix, unless he was challenging for the championship.

But the 38-year-old says he still has “another year, maybe two” before he decides to hang up his kevlars.

He told the Speedway Star: “I'll make up my mind about the GP over the next week or so. What I do know is that it's no use being there making the numbers up - I want to be in there winning the World Championship.”

Adams added: “I'm hoping to do another year, maybe two, but we will have to play that by ear.

“I want to get the finals out of the way first and then sit down with the management and see what Swindon have in mind. I'd love to stay at Swindon, it's a great club, they have great fans, it's near home and it works.”
