Bridewell’s new wheels Tommy in WD40 squad
Tommy Bridewell has signed with Team WD40 for the 2017 season aboard Kawasaki’s all new ZX-10RR.
The Devizes rider had looked almost certain to remain with Halsall Racing, but was left without a seat when Halsall opted to pull the plug on his BSB effort in favour of a move to the roads.
However, multiple BSB race-winner Bridewell was not without options for 2017 including a potential deal to remain with Suzuki in the new Bennettsbacked Hawk squad, but instead opted to become Team WD40’S sole BSB rider.
“I’m excited about the challenge,” Bridewell told MCN. “I feel fresher in my mind, in myself and my training is back to where it was and needs to be. I feel much more driven and motivated than I have been for quite a while. Sometimes it’s hard work for me to go out running or I have to drag myself to the gym, but now I’m training six days a week and if my body would let me, I’d do seven!
“I had two or three options on the table and I felt that the place I’d feel most at home was with WD40 and that’s why I opted for that choice. I’m the sole focus of the team, the only superbike rider and I’m really looking forward to it.”
