Red-hot Redding rides to race one victory

Sunday, October 06 2019

Bennetts British Superbike Championship leader Scott Redding delivered a textbook performance at Donington Park this afternoon to take race one and increase his lead as the season reaches its climax.

Redding's Be Wiser Ducati teammate Josh Brookes was the early leader but the former MotoGP star got his best start of the year and was soon out in front, holding the lead to the chequered flag. Oxford Racing Ducati's Tommy Bridewell produced a solid race to take second with Brookes finishing third.

Redding has taken three races from three in the Showdown after a double win at Assen and now holds a 23-point advantage in the championship going into the second race of the weekend, with a 90-point difference between the first and last-placed Showdown contenders.

And with 100 points still available over the final four races, it promises to be a thrilling close to the 2019 season.
