Tommy Bridewell has laid praise on the Moto Rapido Ducati squad after his second-place qualifying charge as he feels he’s finally found his home.
Oulton was the site of his last British Superbike win three seasons ago, but the Devizes rider says he’s feeling stronger than ever and ready to return to winning ways.
Bridewell led this morning’s third free practice session before a last-ditch effort in the final qualifying segment gave him a front row start for tomorrow’s first Bennetts BSB scrap.
Putting a difficult few seasons behind him, including a mid-season switch from the Movuno.com Halsall Racing squad this year, he says he’s now in a good place.
“I’ve had really tough few years, but finally I have a team that believe in my ability and I believe in them and that makes all the difference,” he said.
“We’ve got a phenomenal bike in the Ducati, and credit to the whole Moto Rapido Ducati team. They don’t make stories up, they don’t lead you down the garden path.
“When it’s me I’m at fault, when it’s them they’re at fault, but we just have a good open relationship. They gave me the confidence in my own ability again.
“There’s nothing to lose bar a bit of pride. This is massive step and I’m looking forward to two strong races tomorrow.”
