Snetterton Double For Rampant Redding

Sunday, July 21, 2019

Round six of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship proved to be a memorable one for anumber of reasons for the Be Wiser Ducati team as Scott Redding romped to a superb double win at Snetterton today.




Making his debut at the Norfolk track, the 26-year-old ex-MotoGP ace from Gloucestershire topped every practice and qualifying session on his factory-supported Be Wiser Ducati Panigale V4 R before winning the opening race to extend his lead at the top of the standings and in doing do, gave Paul Bird’s Cumbrian team their 100th BSB victory.


Not content with that, Redding scorched to victory in race two to add more vital Podium Points to his tally whilst adding the prestigious Monster Energy Race of Aces Trophy to his collection. The only blot on his record this weekend was a hefty spill during this morning’s warm-up session, but the end result is the four-times GP winner holds a 38-point advantage going into the next round at Thruxton.



Team-mate Josh Brookes recorded a pair of runner-up positions behind Redding to get his title bid back on track after a disappointing round at Knockhill last month. The 36-year-old Australian led race two briefly before giving second best to Redding and his solid points this weekend means he has moved to within three points of Tommy Bridewell in second.


Importantly for PBM, Brookes’ results meant that in the prestigious history of Britain’s most successful motorcycle racing team, it’s the first time they have done the ‘double 1-2’ with Be Wiser Ducatis taking the top two spots in both races.


Scott Redding: “I’m really happy with how the weekend has gone and to end with a double victory is brilliant. The first race was quite difficult after the morning crash, so I needed to bide my time and let the race come to me. I was struggling a little to get out of the corners but after a good battle with the other riders I managed to come through and pull a gap to the end of the race. In the second race, I learnt an awful lot by seeing what the other riders were doing and I rode as smoothly as I could throughout and made my move on Josh when the time felt right. It couldn’t have gone much better so a big thanks to the team for doing a phenomenal job and giving me a fantastic bike.”


Josh Brookes: “I felt really strong at the end of the first race and whilst I was being a little bit conservative in the early stages, the battle I had with Tarran Mackenzie cost both of us time and it allowed Scott to make a bit of a break. By the time I got up to second, it was too big a gap to bridge but it was a good start to the day. We made a slight change in between races and it allowed me to push to the limit so with a good start, I felt comfortable out front. I felt like I was controlling the race well but when Scott came by, he seemed to have just a little bit in reserve and had enough of a gap so I couldn’t get back by. Given where I was on Friday, I’ve got to be happy with two second place finishes, so we’ll work hard to find that bit extra to try and get back on the top step at the next round.”


Johnny Mowatt, Team Co-ordinator: “It’s been a superb day and with 1-2 in both races and PBM’s 100th and 101st BSB victories, we couldn’t have asked for more. Scott’s been on stunning form all weekend and although the morning warm-up crash put him and the team on the back foot a bit given the damage to the bike, he used his head in the first race and bided his time until everything was up to working in order and it was a perfect, measured ride. Likewise race two where he shadowed Josh and waited to make his move so two wins on his first time here was brilliant. It was a more challenging weekend for Josh, and he had to work hard to get the two second place finishes, but you could see the changes him and the team made to the bike were helping him move forward all the time. He’s probably a bit frustrated to have led race two for so long but two second place finishes have given him a good haul of points and it’s been a faultless day for everyone at PBM and Be Wiser Ducati.”
