Tommy Bridewell is confident he will return to the sharp end of the field when the British Superbike Championship [BSB] resumes for Round 8 at Cadwell Park this weekend after an unusually lacklustre outing at Thruxton.

Six wins and 13 podiums across 18 races had seen Bridewell take a comfortable lead over Glenn Irwin to his home circuit, only for struggles with the tyres on his BeerMonster Ducati Panigale V4 R to consign him just a 14-14-15 set of results.

Fortunately for Bridewell, with team-mate and closest overall rival Glenn Irwin also suffering similar issues, his series advantage remains intact to the tune of 26.5 points.

Returning to the scene of his very first BSB win some nine years ago, Bridewell is optimistic this weekend’s Cadwell Park event will prove that Thruxton was nothing more than a blip.

“Thruxton was a difficult weekend but also really positive for me,” Bridewell told the BSB website. “I expected to have lost more points to Glenn than I did. 

“My riding style and the way I have always ridden at Thruxton has never been the best combination and Glenn has always seemed to be quite strong at Thruxton so for me to be able to match him there was a big positive. I did expect to lose more points to him at Thruxton.

“For Cadwell Park we are going back to a circuit that suits my style, a circuit that I know the bike works well at and I have had previously had some really strong results on the Ducati there.

“I feel like we have obviously made a massive step this year. Hopefully we can make a step forward again to previous years, and I am really looking forward to it.

“We have some electronics things to test and then really we want to get back to the way the season has been and fighting back for the wins and podiums, to build back up the points lead.”
