Redding ready to come out fighting at Brands Hatch

Scott Redding heads to Brands Hatch this weekend (June 14/15/16) at the top of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship standings by six points following his hat trick of wins last time out at Donington Park, ready to tackle the new challenge of the Grand Prix circuit.

The Be Wiser Ducati rider scored a podium on his championship debut at Silverstone, before taking on the undulations of Oulton Park with two top five finishes at the Cheshire circuit. A triple victory at Donington Park puts him marginally at the top of the standings with the fresh target of mastering the Kent circuit.  

Redding said: “Donington Park was a really good weekend for me getting the triple; I felt really good and gained a lot of confidence and feel very relaxed now. Of course I would like to carry that on to the next weekend at Brands Hatch and I would like to be minimum on the podium there – I don’t think that is asking too much from me or the team and if you are in a podium position you are always in with a chance of winning a race so we will just play it by ear and see.

“Again it is a new track that I have to learn. At Oulton Park I adapted really fast which is something I thrive off like I said at the start of the year. Oulton was one of the hardest tracks I have had to learn and I took advice where I should, but I think Brands Hatch should be easier which is a good thing.

“Brands Hatch is one of the cooler looking tracks and I am looking forward to it; the crowds look pretty amazing there. Everyone says it is one of the bigger rounds of the season and the fans have been great and all their support helps me a lot, so fingers crossed we can have a good weekend and do something special.

“There is always expectation to win again, especially after doing the triple at Donington but it is a different track and we will have to see; it isn’t something that fazes me to be honest. If I can fight for a win then I will and I will do the best I can on the day and not put too much pressure on myself. I just want to try and win. I feel good, the team are working really great, so there are no real excuses, I will just do the best I can and give it my all like I always do.”
