Redding makes history in debut Bennetts BSB season

Sunday, October 20 2019

Scott Redding made Bennetts British Superbike Championship history this afternoon, finishing third in the final race of 2019 to take the title in his debut season, beating his Be Wiser Ducati teammate Josh Brookes by just five points.

Brookes produced another incredible ride to take all three races of the Showdown finale, but it wasn't enough to overturn Redding's 28-point advantage going into the weekend. The 2015 champion had to settle for the runner-up spot, with Tommy Bridewell third.

Redding set the series alight in his debut season, scoring double and triple wins on his way to a record-breaking title. He's the first rider ever to lift the crown in his debut season, and he now heads to the world stage with the Aruba.it Racing team in the Superbike World Championship for 2020.

Race three result:

  1. Josh Brookes (Be Wiser Ducati) 1:25.724s
  2. Tommy Bridewell (Oxford Racing Ducati) +0.223s
