In typical style, Tommy Bridewell is convinced that this year’s Bennetts British Superbike title scrap ain’t over until the fat lady sings and anything can happen over the next two races.
The Oxford Racing Ducati man has a 51-point deficit to Scott Redding in the championship chase but is going to ride his own races and see what happens.
“They could still have crashes, DNFs or anything; it can always go down to the wire so as long as we keep our head up we can still be fighting,” said Bridewell.
“The team have done a great job and I think I am riding well; it was a hard fought second at Assen. I could see on my pitboard Danny was on my heels but we kept pushing on. Now we need to refocus going into Donington.
“I am looking forward to this weekend; I had a good feeling there at the start of the year so we will see what we can do - I think I prefer the longer circuit layout.
“I have put pressure on myself and the team to keep fighting for wins - and they will come. I feel that I am one of the most consistent riders in the championship right now and I am normally there or thereabouts and then it is just who I have to contend with. We are focused on coming back strong at Donington to try and close the gap.”
