Tommy Bridewell says his last-gasp front row result in qualifying provides promise for his Tyco BMW's race pace at Cadwell Park.

The Wiltshire rider, who took his maiden BSB victory in race one with Milwaukee Yamaha 12 months ago at the Lincolnshire circuit, stole third from Quattro Plant Kawasaki's Luke Mossey by four-thousandths of a second as the chequered flag fell on the top ten shootout.

Bridewell says he was delighted to take his second front row start of the year and is confident his qualifying performance hints at a strong race pace.

"I left it late but it is always nice to do it towards the end of the session because it shows the race pace is strong in the low 1m 27s," Bridewell said. "We just didn't have the pace of the two guys up front, they rode well and both got a really strong here.

"The first objective was always the front row so now if we can hang on to the front two because their pace is going to be strong. The weather looks good and the crowd here go ballistic, it is mega, and it kicks you up the ass a little bit."

Bridewell currently occupies the final Showdown spot in sixth and will be looking to strengthen his position in the MCE British Superbike championship along with collecting a helping of Podiums points.
