RICHARD BRADLEY OFF TO A GREAT START

Formula BMW Pacific Championship Leader Wins His First Street Race At Home

Singapore, 26 September 2010 - IN his first ever race on a street circuit, Formula BMW Pacific championship leader Richard Bradley clinched the win in a most intense and controversial of battles. Although the 19-year-old Eurasia Motorsport driver crossed the finish line in second place, the results were reversed after an investigation by the stewards and Bradley was awarded the win. With a lead of 57 points in the Drivers' Championship and Rookie Cup, Bradley needs to score just seven more points than his closest rival Jordan Oon of E-Rain Racing in this afternoon's race to clinch both titles.

Having started in second place, Bradley took the lead from Turn 7 in the first lap and led for most of the race until the final lap when Formula BMW Europe guest driver Daniil Kvyat of Eurointernational hit him from behind. Kvyat took the chequered flag but was subsequently penalised for the move by the stewards, giving Bradley the win.

As guest drivers are not entitled to score points, Bradley widened his lead for the Drivers Championship and Rookie Cup to 57 points, scoring full points for Round 11 and one more point for qualifying.

"Qualifying was frustrating as I made a mistake on my fastest lap but nonetheless it was a good solid result and I was confident for the race. It feels great to win my first ever street race. I'm happy with my performance and it's a fantastic result for the championship," said Bradley.
