Bridewell and Tyco Honda Part Company

1 Mins read

Tommy Bridewell and the Tyco Honda team have parted company with immediate effect, almost certainly ending the 2011 BSB campaign for the Wiltshire man.

Bridewell started the season in spectacular fashion with a podium finish at the opening round at Brands Hatch but his form has dipped since then, with just two top-ten finishes following.

The 22 year old agreed following discussions with team owner Ian Woollacott that the best way forward for both parties was to part company, meaning the Quay Garage squad will complete the campaign with a two-man line-up.

“I’m disappointed it hasn’t worked out after a great start to the season but we’ve really struggled since”, explained Bridewell. “I’ve had some issues with the handling of the bike which the team has done their best to help with but we realised that it was perhaps better to call it a day. I’d like to thank the team for the opportunity and wish them continued success in the future.”

Despite the ending of their relationship, Woollacott maintains his belief that Bridewell has a bright future ahead of him.

“It’s a shame that Tommy has been unable to replicate the success he had for us in the first round as we know him to be a very talented rider. We have had some great moments in the past and I wish him all the very best for the future.”

The 2011 British Superbike Championship continues at the new Snetterton 300 circuit this weekend, and Tyco Honda will continue with Peter Hickman on the CBR1000RR Fireblade, while Patric Muff will continue to represent them in the EVO class.
