Redding: “I am ready to get stuck in!”

Scott Redding is ready to come out fighting on his Bennetts British Superbike Championship debut at Silverstone this Easter weekend (April 19/20/21) as the former MotoGP contender gets set for his Bennetts British Superbike Championship debut.

Redding made a shock switch to the Be Wiser Ducati team at the end of last season and has already shown in pre-season testing that he can rapidly adapt, switching from racing a MotoGP prototype to a BSB-spec Superbike, a change in tyres whilst also learning new circuits.

The 26-year-old knows he will have a target on his back when the lights go out for the opening races of the season on Sunday, but is thriving on the new challenge ahead.

Redding said: “The pre-season has gone really well and I was happy with how it went; I don’t think I would have expected any more or any less. At Silverstone it was the first time I rode in the cooler conditions with that bike which was different for me, and I think in general we had a good feeling. I had a great reception from the fans and I can’t wait to get back there for more this weekend; we still have a lot of work to do with the new bike but I am quite comfortable and feeling good.

“This will be the first BSB race for me so I’m interested to see how it pans out and I am looking forward to getting back battling for podiums again - I am excited and ready to get tucked in there! I of course have a target on my back as everyone wants to beat me, that’s for sure. But that is the same for everyone, it doesn’t bother me though as I am ready to just get stuck in!

“This weekend I want to see improvements, do my best, get stuck in and at the end of the weekend to win a race or two would be amazing. We are in a good position to be fighting for them and I am ready to get on it!”

The ninth round of the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship takes place at Oulton Park on September 6/7/8 for the Showdown Title Fighter decider. for more information and to book visit www.oultonpark.co.uk
