Chris­tian Id­don was knock­ing on the door of his de­but MCE Bri­tish Su­per­bike vic­tory in a strong show­ing for the Tyco BMW team this week­end.

Push­ing win­ner Luke Mossey from start to fin­ish in Mon­day’s sec­ond race, it looked as though Id­don could have nicked the win un­til he dropped off slightly in the dy­ing stages.

To­gether with a strong fight for the podium in race one, the re­sult sees his con­fi­dence boosted af­ter a tough time in pre-sea­son test­ing.

“I wasn’t that pos­i­tive at the start of the sea­son be­cause I was get­ting frus­trated with the same is­sues as last year,” Id­don told MCN. “Even at Don­ing­ton we got a podium, but it’s a good cir­cuit for me and the BMW, so I even left there with­out be­ing too happy, but we’ve re­ally turned things around this week­end.

“We’ve made a few slight chas­sis changes, noth­ing too mas­sive but it’s a big im­prove­ment. We still haven’t got a mo­tor­bike I feel I can race prop­erly, but we’re get­ting there.”
