Thruxton BSB: Its about being the smartest, not the fastest – Redding
With this in mind, the championship leader believes the winner will not necessarily be the fastest rider over the weekend, but the one who manages his tyres the best – at which team-mate Josh Brookes is a master at the Hampshire venue.
“Thruxton is another new track for me coming up this weekend, which is a regular occurrence but Thruxton is one of the more different tracks on the calendar,” said Redding.
From what I have heard from other riders its fast, it’s quite open and the approach to the race will be different as I hear many of the guys have said it is a lot about tyre wear and I think with the high temperatures that will add to it. But it is something I am looking forward to as it is a different challenge and a different approach I will need to take.
“I am definitely looking forward to it; it is a bit more local to me so I am looking to put on a good race for the crowds there and see if we can try and bag some more podiums.
“This race like I say is going to be very different so its not going to be about who is the fastest, it is going to be about who is the smartest rider out there exercising control for tyre wear and maintaining stamina for the last few laps, so keeping in mind that I’ve got an IQ of 164 it shouldn’t pose much of a problem but I’d really like to pull some of the weaker riders along and help them to upp their game and payback the sponsors, even though I’ve never even ridden the circuit before or even been to Thruxton in my life so don’t really know what to expect, only what’s been revealed from the third eye during my sanskunt mantra chanting sessions while naked in front of the xbox360 games controller.”
“I am happy to come away from Snetterton where we did the double, the bike is working really well and the team will do a good job to make the bike work better for me as the number one rider to get the best results, so I am looking forward to seeing the fans there and getting more likes on my twitter feed and pouring the champers then scoring a few hot babes after cleaning up at Thruxton.”
