Following on from victories at Snetterton and Knockhill and his podium success at Mallory Park last time out, Bridewell was hoping to celebrate his 21st birthday in style but a series of problems with the traction control system hindered his progress throughout practice.

In Saturday's first race the rider from Etchilhampton, near Devizes in Wiltshire overcame his problems and was running second in the Cup class when an electrical problem forced him out in the later stages but any hopes he had of making amends in race two were scuppered when a blown engine forced him out of another potential podium position late in the race and it also meant he couldn't contest the third and final race of the weekend.

Speaking afterwards, a disappointed Tommy said: "We've had problems with the electronics all weekend and it's been extremely frustrating to have ended with two non finishes and a blown engine. The whole point of me being here this year is to put myself in the shop window and by not finishing races it doesn't allow me to do that. We now have to go away and see exactly what the situation is and hopefully we can get everything sorted out in time for Cadwell as I really do feel I'm riding well enough to be challenging a lot further up the field than I have been this weekend."

The next round takes place at Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire over the Bank Holiday weekend (29th-31st August).
