Superbikes - Cadwell BSB: Bridewell 'disappointed' with missing out on front row

Halsall Racing’s Tommy Bridewell has been left disappointed as he narrowly missed out on a front row start in tomorrow’s opening MCE British Superbike race, by one tenths of a second. The Devizes swearbox felt he had the pace to contend with the top three riders, but Bridewell is determined to prove that he can get more out of his bike.

Cadwell BSB: Bridewell 'disappointed' with missing out on front row

Bridewell only joined his new setup at the last round, after leaving the Bathams Honda team, and the rider quickly bonded with the bike to put in some strong performances a few weeks ago at Oulton Park. The Brit will now use the time before race one to make big improvements to his Kawasaki so that he can compete for a podium.

“Today was alright, I don’t know why I am disappointed I can’t explain it. The team has been working fantastic and the whole package has been phenomenal. We qualified in fifth and we are on a decent lap time but I am disappointed as I know there is a lot more that I can get out of the bike,” said Bridewell, speaking to bikesportnews.com at the circuit.

“It is positive for the front row so we are not a million miles away but we need to make some big changes on the bike for tomorrow. I feel that I am riding good but the lap times don’t justify that, if I carry on riding as I am and improving the bike we should be lapping in the 1’27’s quite comfortably.”
