Poleman Scott Redding has revealed he feels relaxed and is having fun after another dominant day at Snetterton.
The Be Wiser Ducati rider swept to pole for tomorrow’s first Bennetts British Superbike Championship race after topping the timesheets in every session so far this weekend.
Yesterday, he told Bikesport News that Norfolk’s Snetterton 300 circuit felt like a ‘scaled-down MotoGP track’ and today he found it just as much fun.
“There are a couple of corners here I can relate to in a mini version from in GP so that helps me a little bit, I can relax and I can ride the bike a bit more like MotoGP style which is what suits me,” he explained.
“I’m just having fun. I’m enjoying it so much. The bike is working really well which allows me to ride it in that way and I’m just gelling well with it.
“I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about this track which I feel amazing with and I’m enjoying it.”
Redding admits he was a little disappointed not to break the 1’46 barrier in qualifying, but believes his best chance was scuppered when the red flag came out after Peter Hickman tipped off his Smith’s BMW.
“I wanted to get into the 46s, I think the outright lap record is 46.0 so we’re still a long way away but with different tyres, I said I wanted to go into the 46s today.
“That was the lap when the red flag came out so I was a little bit frustrated because we’re always trying to better ourselves but red flags are there to do a job. We’ve still got a pole position so I’m happy.”
