- TITLE: Official! Tommy Bridewell is confirmed as Ducati Glasgow's Celebrity Guest of Honour at BSB!
- PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
- DATE: Monday 17th June 2019.
Tommy Bridewell, British Superbike Championship competitor, riding for Moto Rapido Racing on a Ducati Panigale V4 R is confirmed to be the Celebrity Guest of Honour at Ducati Glasgow's VIP Hospitality on Raceday of Round 5 at Knockhill Racing Circuit on Sunday 30th June 2019.
The 30-year-old racer secured top leaderboard positions throughout the latter end of the 2018 British Superbike Championship when he stepped in to replace Taylor Mackenzie on the Moto Rapido Racing Team. So far into the 2019 stages, Bridewell has been achieving highly competitive results on his Ducati Panigale V4 R, bike number 46. Bridewell recently provided another strong performance when he finished 10th in the World Superbike Grid at Jerez in place of Eugene Laverty at Team Goeleven, another monumental point in his racing career.
From Jerez to Knockhill, the British rider will make a scheduled appearance within the Ducati Glasgow VIP Hospitality Marquee, providing guests with an interview, opportunities to take that all important selfie, have merchandise signed and receive top riding tips from Bridewell himself!
VIP ticket holders will be treated to an on-site interview with Bridewell, hosted by Ducati Glasgow Managing Director, Martin Rees, who isn't shy when it comes to interrogating riders and exposing the behind the scenes of the racing industry.
Rees added, "It's fantastic to have Tommy visit our VIP Hospitality this year, both for the entertainment of our guests, and to enable us to show our support for him and our good friends, Moto Rapido Racing. Tommy's made an amazing impression so far in BSB and he's really pushing for the top spot this year, which is looking pretty achievable! I'm sure our guests would love to hear how he is getting on with the V4 R and how he's managed to score points in the World Superbike Championship! It'll be a great day and we're all looking forward to it."
Steve Wilf Moore, Team Principal of Moto Rapido Racing commented, "We love coming up to Scotland! What a reception we get from racing fans and of course from our friends at Ducati Glasgow and their customers! I'm sure they're all keen to watch Tommy's performance on the Panigale V4 R at Knockhill, and hopefully see him on podium!"
VIP Guests will also be able to win the opportunity to visit the Moto Rapido Racing Pit Garage and receive a private introduction to the Moto Rapido Racing Team, see up-close the V4 R machine used in the racing series and find out exactly what goes into operating a race team, by none other than Moto Rapido Racing Team Manager, Iain Hopcroft. The winner of this money-can't-buy experience will be chosen through the outcome of a raffle which is open to Ducati Glasgow VIP Hospitality guests only.
