Tommy Bridewell returns to his home circuit of Thruxton hoping to ride the wave of local support as he bids to put more air between himself and the competition in his quest for a first British Superbike Championship [BSB] title.

The BeerMonster Ducati rider arrives at the Hampshire venue - located 25 miles from the high-speed circuit - as BSB championship leader for the first time in his well-established career.

Five wins in the last six races - including a triumphant triple at Snetterton - has seen Bridewell strengthen his grip on this year’s title race despite the slimmer points’ margins between results as part of the new Title Showdown format.

Armed with a 34.5 point advantage over team-mate Glenn Irwin, though Bridewell is yet to step foot on the podium at Thruxton since his BSB debut in 2010, he is confident he can carry his momentum to the front again.

“Coming into my home round I don’t have any expectations in all honesty as that is the best way for me to approach this weekend,” he told the BSB website. 

“We all know that Thruxton is an all-out tyre war - who is able to manage the tyres the best and whose bike is able to manage the tyre with the power delivery.

“Plain and simple, we are going to carry on working the way we have been and if it works for us and we get the results that we know we are capable of then fantastic.

“If it doesn’t we will take what is on offer and then roll into Cadwell Park. I am really looking forward though to taking our momentum into our home weekend.”
