Redding ready for more familiar territory: “I want to try and get my first win”

Scott Redding is set for a return to Donington Park next weekend (May 24/25/26) for the first triple-header Bennetts British Superbike Championship round of the season, having last raced at the Leicestershire circuit in 2009 when he scored a podium finish in the 125cc Grand Prix class after celebrating victory in 2008.

Redding climbed into sixth place in the overall standings following two strong finishes last time out at Oulton Park, but now is hungry to add to his Silverstone podium finish with another top three result next weekend as he bids for a debut Bennetts BSB victory.

The return to Donington Park is something that Redding is relishing and the Be Wiser Ducati rider is expecting the circuit to suit his style after completing some initial laps on a Ducati road bike earlier this week.

Redding said: “Donington Park is a circuit that should suit me a little bit better even though I enjoyed Oulton Park so much, going to Donington is a more Grand Prix style track so a little bit more like my habitat and what I am used to! Obviously there are three races there so I think it is a good chance for me to bag some more points to get up in the championship a bit more and close the gap to the leaders.

“I am really looking forward to it as I have great memories there; I won in 2008 and I got a podium in 2009 so I am looking forward to a good weekend. I rode the track the other day on a street bike and just felt good to be there. The track looked quite a lot different as to 2009, which was the last time I had ever been to Donington Park until this week so it was like a newbie again to me.

"The track was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to get out there and see what we can do. I want to try and get my first win of the year at Donington Park – that is my goal and I think that is realistic so we will be working hard to achieve that.”
