Tyco BMW’s Christian Iddon had one of his best Bennetts British Superbike weekend’s of the year at Donington, demonstrating better pace than even the rider himself expected.

Iddon showed good speed in both wet and dry conditions and was a podium challenger in both outings but just couldn’t find the extra couple of tenths required to stick with the front three after his left footpeg fell off in race one.

“It was a good weekend, I had been quick in all conditions, which we certainly had all conditions throughout the weekend. Race one was surprising because although we had good pace, we had better pace than I was expecting which is always a real bonus,” said Iddon.

“I was really confident for race two but for whatever reason the pace wasn’t just quite there. Race two was actually quite a lot quicker and although we stepped it up, we didn’t quite make the step up that some of our competitors did and I ended up fifth.

“It was a shame to miss out on the podium in race one as I felt there was a high probability I could have kept that position, but we are coming away with a sixth and a fifth and positive about the final round at Brands Hatch.”
