Bridewell pleased to make WSBK top twenty

Tommy Bridewell battles hard at Silverstone to crack the top twenty on his wild-card outing with Tyco Honda.
Tommy Bridewell has pronounced himself pleased with his performance on the World Superbike stage despite enduring a trying race day aboard the Tyco Racing Honda.

British Superbike regulars Quay Garage Honda stepped up to the international stage as a wild-card at Silverstone under the Tyco Racing banner by virtue of a last minute sponsorship deal, but faced an uphill battle from the off.

Nonetheless, having missed out on Superpole, Bridewell was able to edge into the top twenty in both races, even finishing ahead of BSB title contender Ryuichi Kiyonari during the first encounter.

While he didn't score the points he was hoping for, Bridewell enjoyed his weekend as a World Superbike rider and is confident he has learnt plenty to take into the remainder of the BSB season.

"I think it's the hardest I have ever worked at a race meeting in all of my career. We were chasing set up with the front suspension whilst trying to learn a brand new circuit and competing against bikes which were so much faster than ours, so to come away with two top twenty results is fantastic.

“I have to say a massive thanks to both my team and our sponsors, Tyco, and it has been a wonderful experience to have them on board and hopefully we can reward them with a decent result at Brands Hatch.

“Our focus is British Superbikes this year, we have learned so much from this weekend, and hope that will stand us in good stead for a good result next weekend."

Good rides! Only a few tenths from pipping RLH in the second race too! This just goes to show how competitive WSB is, and regardless of the rider, massive respect should be given to each and every rider out there. These guys are amogst the best in the world at what they do, whether at the front or the back. How many of us can say that about ourselves hey? We are around mid pack in club racing at the moment, and we are pleased with our progress so we know how difficult the sport is. Full respect to all!

@ if i had a bike You really don't know what you are talking about. That bike Tommy is riding is ancient in comparison to what most of the WSB boys are on, jeez it's ancient compared to what most of the BSB boys are on. Tommy gave a good account of himself and got a huge amount of applause from a very knowledgable crowd at Silverstone (i.e. not you). Tommy is trying to put himself in the shop window for next year, this was a good way of going about it as those in the know (i.e. not you) and those that are in a position to give him a ride (i.e. not you) will have seen his potential and hopefully he might get something decent to ride round on next year. Jeez some people :?
