Af­ter a tor­rid two years on Honda ma­chin­ery in 2014 and 2015, it looked to many that Red­ding’s chances of se­cur­ing a fac­tory seat had maybe slipped away for good.

But with new mo­ti­va­tion in the form of a bike that he loves rid­ing and a team he loves work­ing with, he has firmly set his sights on fol­low­ing An­drea Ian­none and se­cur­ing a fac­tory Du­cati ride next year.

“Du­cati are the ex­act op­po­site of Honda. They’ve given me a good base and they want to keep push­ing, keep giv­ing me what I need if I do well. They go to win, and they don’t care about any­thing else. That’s the sole ob­jec­tive from the week­end.

“My tar­get is to get on the fac­tory bike, end of story, and I think that’s what Du­cati and Pra­mac want too. They want to see me come up, get go­ing and get on to the fac­tory bike. It worked with Ian­none and I think they want to do the same with me. It fills you with con­fi­dence!”
