Bridewell encouraged after Brands test

Tommy Bridewell sets competitive lap times during testing at Brands Hatch as he and Quay Garage Honda prepare for the 2010 season
Quay Garage's British Superbike endeavour has taken its first steps following a test at Guadix and Brands Hatch with new signing Tommy Bridewell.

The reigning Superbike Cup champions will step up to the championship class in 2010 having acquired an ex-Gregorio Lavilla Honda CBR1000RR for the season.

Bridewell sampled the bike for the first time in a weather-affected test at Guadix last week, but began focusing on set-up at Brands Hatch, the 21-year-old setting competitive lap times to produce a best of 46.8secs.

"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,” he said. “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."

This is a day for being outdone I can tell. Pending the advert being noticed and changed........ Ladies and Gentlemens if you would cast your eyes to the right of the screen and peruse the mce / BSB advert: Brands Hatch 2-5 May Easter Weekend. Now with Easter 2010 is in April that's the sort of *real* forward planning I can take my hat off to :rolleyes: Ah yes Mr Soddus, I know you asked us to renew your bike insurance and indeed we have ... we're just not sure whether we've renewed it for next year or simply the wrong month. Will there be anything else sir? Oh
