Andrews relishing Cadwell return

A year on from his first British Superbike podium at Cadwell Park, Simon Andrews targets something similar in 2010.
Simon Andrews returns to the scene of his first and so far only British Superbike Championship podium at Cadwell Park looking to recreate similar kind of form.

The MSS Colchester Kawasaki rider was classified third at the Louth venue in 2009 following Leon Camier's exclusion from victory, a long awaited podium finish for the rider that had been closing on a first rostrum throughout the year.

While his 2010 season has not seen him repeat that feat, an endeavour not aided by him missing three events through injury – including the first visit of the year to Cadwell Park -, Andrews has shown solid top ten form on his return.

“Obviously last year was a good result so we know we go well there and that it's a strong track for us. For a change we start the weekend with some good data too because Gaz went well there earlier in the year, so that will help us.

“It's also the start of the last third of the season and we want to end it well with some good points and show what we can do. The remaining circuits suit us well so we want it to be a trouble-free run to the end and I hope we can end the year on a high.”

Andrews can take heart from Gary Mason's performance aboard the ZX-10R at Cadwell Park earlier this year, even if his efforts of making it into the top ten shootout during qualifying were ruined by a crash that ruled him out of the races.

“We can start from a strong position at Cadwell because we know what we did earlier in the year, we've got good data and so our aim is to carry on where we left off, just without the crash!

“It's a very good circuit for me because it's a rider's track like Oulton and I always go well at those circuits. It's a good track for the ZX-10R too and we know it works well there so confidence is high. We just need some good luck for once because we know what we're capable of.”
