Brands BSB: Redding trying not to pressure himself after Donington domination

Be Wiser Ducati’s Scott Redding is trying not to put too much pressure on himself at this weekend’s Brands Bennetts British Superbike round after winning all three races last time out at Donington.

Like Oulton Park a few weeks ago, Redding will have to spend Friday learning the Kent track on the Panigale V4R before he can start to get the hammer down.

“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,” said Redding.

“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.”
