Traction Charger sponsors Tommy Bridewell at British Super Bikes 2018


British battery charger manufacturers Traction Charger is proud to announce their sponsorship of Tommy Bridewell in the 2018 British Superbikes.

Tommy is from Devizes, UK which is where Traction Charger is based and as such the company has followed his rise through the biking world over the last 15 years. Tommy started racing bikes in 2000, graduating through the years up to racing in the British 125 GB class finishing 4th in 2003 and 8th in 2004. In 2005 he moved into the Yamaha R6 cup first year on a 4 stroke, winning four times. 2007 was a tough year for Tommy and his family losing his race companion and brother Ollie. In 2008 Tommy moved to Italy to compete in the Italian Superbike Championship where he broke his leg in round one but returned to action after only eight weeks and secured 3rd overall in the championship. From 2009 he has competed in the European stk100 championships and British Superbikes regularly securing podium spots.
