2019 British Superbike Championship
Round 8 – Cadwell Park Qualifying Times


Josh Brookes claimed his third pole position of the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship season at Cadwell Park, setting a time under the existing lap record to put the Be Wiser Ducati at the top of the times by 0.224s.

Brookes set the pace in the final Q3 stage after topping the free practice times yesterday as the 2015 champion bids to close down the Podium Points deficit to championship leader Scott Redding in tomorrow’s two races in Lincolnshire.

Josh Brookes

“I’m really pleased. We’ve had a couple of poor years here recently and I haven’t really been able to do anything that satisfying, so to have the bike that feels the way it does underneath me is is great, I don’t need to follow anybody to do the lap, I can do it on my own. The bike feels like it’s doing what I want it to do and we’re doing the lap times that prove it. I can’t be more pleased for myself but obviously I’ve got to thank everybody involved in the team, all the sponsors and my mechanics that do the work, and in front of a fantastic crowd here on a Saturday afternoon.”

However, the biggest celebration came from the Buildbase Suzuki team as Bradley Ray returned to the front row for the first time this season in Datatag Qualifying, nudging ahead of Tommy Bridewell on the Oxford Racing Ducati to complete the front row.
