Two months out of action and a 130mph crash at the infamous Craner Curves couldn't stop the NB Suzuki who was lucky to walk away uninjured. He started both race from row seven of the grid and battled to a brilliant 18th place in the opening 20 lap encounter before following that up with a 19th place in race two.

At Silverstone and Snetterton earlier in the year he finished in the top ten and he is hoping to return to that form, however both Bridewell and his team were reasonably happy with their weekend's work.

"It's been a difficult weekend at times for everyone but we needed to get back to doing what we do and that's to go racing," he said, "Having not raced a bike properly since June, I felt very rusty for the first couple of days and the big crash didn't help during practice but race one saw me get back into the groove but then in race two, I really started to enjoy it once everything started flowing again" he said.

He went on to say, "I'd like to thank the team and all the fans for their support this weekend, it has meant a lot to me and my family and perhaps we can get back to scoring points at Brands Hatch."

At the final round of the championship at Brands Hatch over the weekend of October 12th-14th and in addition to racing the Team NB Suzuki, Bridewell plans on doing a couple of 'demonstration' laps in the special' Yamaha R1-engined Mini which was a project he started with his brother Ollie. He and a number of friends have since completed the project following Ollie's accident at Mallory Park and they will be taking to the track in the Mini in memory of Ollie.
