Scott Redding had a rather average weekend at Imola

Gold and Goose

After some good results last time out at Donington Park there was a small bit of hope that BMW and Scott Redding were about to turn a corner. However, Redding was overshadowed at Imola by fellow BMW rider, Loris Baz.

Scott Redding arrived at Imola, a track he had never raced a Superbike at, on a high after a fourth place finish last time out at Donington Park. Redding had the media waiting for Sunday evening as he stated that he would announce where he will be riding in 2024 after the races, this is an announcement that is yet to arrive.

Throughout the races at Imola Redding still had good results compared to other races this season. Redding finished 10th, 9th and 8th across the three races which took place in searing temperatures. However, Loris Baz put in stand out results and beat Redding in both Race One and Race Two.


“The weekend has not been too bad, really," said Redding after the races. "We had a good qualifying, the practices were not so bad. But we had a really high temperature coming in yesterday’s race and today. We just missed a little bit, really.

"When the grip drops from the temperature we seem to suffer a bit more than the other people. But from yesterday to today I tried to do something a little bit different, I tried to be a bit more calmer on the front tyre and it was better. The race was shorter but also it was so hot. I never felt this hot in a race, even atyAragón or Jerez when it was 42 degrees. It was not that hot as it is now.

"My hands were burning. It has been a good decision to make the race shorter because it was coming to a boiling point. Overall, regarding the hot conditions it has not been so bad for us here, we normally suffer more so I took some usable data that we can try to work on for the next races.”

Redding now gets a break before heading to Most on the 28th-30th of July, this is a track Redding has fond memories at so he will be hoping to go well around there.
