Bridewell strikes first at Snetterton to top Free Practice

Tommy Bridewell remained at the top of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship Free Practice times at Snetterton, firing the Honda Racing UK team ahead of their rivals after the opening two sessions in Norfolk, to lead Hager PBM Ducati’s Glenn Irwin by just 0.052s.

Bridewell had topped the morning session and the times continued to tumble during the afternoon, but the reigning champion had enough to keep the edge over his opposition, moving back to the top with 20 minutes remaining and then setting the benchmark time on his final sequence of laps.

Glenn Irwin is pushing to bounce after Knockhill and the Hager PBM Ducati rider moved into second place on his final run of the session, nudging local contender Ryan Vickers into third by 0.334s as three different manufacturers locked out the leading three positions.

Kyle Ryde was fourth fastest as he closed on his teammate on the second of the OMG GRILLA Yamaha Racing R1s with Danny Kent completing the top five for McAMS Racing Yamaha.

Josh Brookes surged to sixth in the closing stage on the leading FHO Racing BMW Motorrad Team M 1000 RR, nudging Christian Iddon and Jason O’Halloran into seventh and eighth place respectively.

Charlie Nesbitt was another rider to move into the top 12 in the closing minutes, as he ended ninth fastest to be in the starting list for Speedy Hire Q2 tomorrow in Norfolk.

Rory Skinner completed the top ten for the Cheshire Mouldings BMW Motorrad team with Lee Jackson and Andrew Irwin completing the top 12, whilst Billy McConnell just missed out in 13th on the C&L Fairburn Properties/Look Forward Racing Honda.
