Brookes and Bridewell share free practice honours at Cadwell BSB

Friday, August 16 2019

Josh Brookes and Tommy Bridewell shared the honours in today's Bennetts British Superbike Championship free practice sessions at a rainy Cadwell Park ahead of this weekend's annual 'Party in the Park'.

Be Wiser Ducati's Brookes, known for his high-flying antics on Cadwell's Mountain complex, was 0.096s faster than the FS-3 Racing Kawasaki of Danny Buchan to take free practice one. The session started in light rain but Brookes handled the conditions well and held his lead.

Free practice two was cut short by rain, with some riders opting not to see out the session as the weather worsened.  Bridewell set the benchmark time before the conditions began to deteriorate, with this morning's pace-setter Brookes sitting 2.207s behind him in second.

The forecast for the rest of the weekend promises to be significantly drier and brighter, with Bennetts BSB qualifying tomorrow and two headline races on Sunday as the fight to qualify for the 2019 Showdown continues.
