BeerMonster Ducati Aim To Bounce Back At Cadwell

After a tough weekend at the previous round, BeerMonster Ducati riders Tommy Bridewell and Glenn Irwin are aiming to bounce back in style when  round eight of the 2023 Bennetts British Superbike Championship takes place at Cadwell Park this bank holiday weekend.

Despite the disappointment of Thruxton, Paul Bird’s riders still occupy first and second in the standings heading into the final four rounds with Bridewell holding a 26.5-point advantage over teammate Irwin, who in turn is 24 points ahead of third placed Jason O’Halloran.

Bridewell, from Devizes in Wiltshire, has won six races so far this season which he’s backed up with seven additional podiums whereas Irwin, from Carrickfergus in County Antrim, has four victories to his name as well as six podiums for the Lake District-based team.

In contrast to the wide-open sweeps of Thruxton, the undulating nature of Cadwell Park is expected to suit the BeerMonster Ducatis better in front of what is expected to be the biggest crowd of the season at the Lincolnshire venue whereby Tommy and Glenn will be aiming to reassert their authority.

Bridewell has a great record at Cadwell Park which includes a win and ten podiums, seven of which have come in his last eight Cadwell Park races aboard Ducati machinery. Irwin, meanwhile, who celebrates his 200th Bennetts BSB start in Sunday’s opening BikeSocial sprint race, has race-winning pedigree in the Supersport class at Cadwell so will be looking to grab that first BSB win around the 2.18-mile track.

Tommy Bridewell: “Cadwell Park has been a happy hunting ground for me in the past and I’ve had some really good results over recent years on a Ducati, so the plan is to continue that run. I know for a fact the bike is really strong around there and I’m looking forward to getting back to the circuits I know we’ll be competitive at, starting this weekend. I love Cadwell Park as it’s so unique and it suits my riding style also, plus it’s the polar opposite to Thruxton and you have to be pin-perfect everywhere. We need to get back to the sharp end where I know we should be, and this weekend is the perfect opportunity to bounce back.”

Glenn Irwin: “I know Cadwell Park really well as I’ve done a lot of testing there over the years when I rode for Honda and it’s  a round I always look forward to. I had pole position there in 2021 and led the race but was riding injured so couldn’t wrap the victory up. This year with the Ducati, it’s a challenge I’m particularly relishing as I know how good Tommy has been in recent years on the older-spec bike. We know the 2023 bike will work well and after the disappointment of Thruxton, it’s vitally important we get back to being competitive and for me to keep chipping away at the lead and keep the pressure on Tommy.”
