BRIDEWELL'S LID TRIBUTE TO OLLIE

Rapidly making a nuisance of himself amongst the works bikes in the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship this season, Wiltshire rider Tommy Bridewell is planning a special tribute to his late brother Ollie when the next round of the series visits Mallory Park later this month on June 25/27th.

After finishing an incredible fourth aboard the 2008-specification Quay Garage Honda at Cadwell Park last time out, the 21-year-old from Etchilhampton near Devizes is planning on sporting an exact replica helmet of his elder brother who was killed at the Leicestershire track three years ago.

Thereafter, Tommy will donate the Arai lid, specially painted by Paul Kerfoot, to the CJ Fund for them to auction off later in the year as part of their fundraising quest to purchase a 'Clinica Mobile' for BSB, similar to the ones in MotoGP and World Superbikes.

"I wanted to do something special and what better tribute to old ginger than not only racing with his number, but to get a helmet painted in his colours. Arai have kindly donated one and whilst Ollie's favourite charity was Cancer Research, we felt that the CJ Fund does such brilliant work in BSB, I'd like to donate it to them to raise as much money as possible," said Tom.
