Bennetts British Superbike star Tommy Bridewell says his fourth-place finish at the 2018 Suzuka Eight-Hours was an unbelieveable result.

The West Country man, who was riding with the works-backed S-Pulse Dream Suzuki team, put in a faultless performance to bag fourth place behind the full works Yamaha, Honda and Kawasaki teams.

“Everything was fantastic and the result was unbelievable. The bike was perfect with a good engine, predictable chassis, electrics and tyres… everything just worked wonderfully in the dry, wet, and even in the dark,” said Bridewell.

“My Mum used to tell me to eat my carrots so I would be able to see well at night, so I’ll have to thank her too. Joking apart, the team did a great job too with perfect pitting timing and pit work. I’m very pleased.”
