Quay Garage Racing’s Tommy Bridewell was in action at Brands Hatch yesterday for the official test prior to the opening round of the 2010 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship over Easter and reported a satisfactory day at the Kent track.
The 21 year old from Etchilhampton near Devizes tested the ex Gregorio Lavilla Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade at a weather-affected Guadix in Spain last week but got down to business at the Brands Indy circuit where he recorded a fastest time of 46.8 seconds despite track conditions being less than favourable after an oil spillage.
Tommy Bridewell: "I’m pleased with how the day went and considering the traffic and track conditions at times, for us to consistently lap sub 47 seconds shows we’re somewhere near. I’m not sure what everyone else was doing time wise but that’s not important as it’s come the races that matter, we just concentrated on getting a good set up. We only used two rear race tyres throughout the day and those times would have comfortably put us in the top ten at last year’s pace but there’s much more to come from both me and the bike. I don’t see any reason why we can’t be challenging for podiums this season."
