Scott Redding (GBR / ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team) suffered a difficult weekend in the #CatalanWorldSBK, as bad luck with the Superpole interruption was followed by a crash and tyre problems in the two main races.

Next Thursday and Friday, the ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team will be taking part in WorldSBK testing in Misano (ITA). The fifth round of the 2023 WorldSBK will take place at the same location from 2nd to 4th June.

“The Superpole race was not really good, to be honest. I just can’t find the speed with the bike here. I am struggling quite a lot. I thought the Superpole race would be better, but with the better pace from the other guys it was more difficult for me. Then in race two today I felt that I could maybe stay there a bit more and I stayed in the group longer, but I was pushing so hard to be there that in the end I destroyed the rear tyre completely so that it was unrideable, and I also destroyed the front tyre. But this is because I needed to work so hard to just stay with the group and here I’m overriding the bike. So I am a little bit upset with the results this weekend. We knew that it would be hard here but we tried anyway. Now we get back to the drawing board and work for the next race.”
