Redding would be a good bet, although he's not too familiar with the circuit ( he did an Indy circuit trackday in the last week or so).
Brooke's is always fast at brands. Bridewell is on great form at the mo and those V4s should have the edge driving up the hill out of surtees.
The BMWs are starting to show better race pace.
And of course Ohallorhan and Mackenzie are always there or thereabouts this year.
Tough one to call, but I reckon Brookes

Great racing at Snet if the weather's a bit iffy / changeable, but can be full of dry n sunny. Having said that, this year the top 10 or 12 in every class have been really close.
I used to love being at the eases, was first left hander on the old circuit, plenty of overtakes/wobbles/run-on's etc I'm not so keen on the new layout.

Be aware, it's on high ground so always breezy and if it's dry too there's always a lot of dust blowing about, so make sure you have some eye protection.
Enjoy your weekend 👍

We had a really good day! 8-)
parked virtually trackside near Murrays hairpin
saw some good racing/incidents and got Sunburnt despite
wearing a hat and using sun block.
Quite impressed with Snetterton!

Redding is doing very well, considering he has to learn virtually every track! I'm new to BSB, but I really enjoy watching him race.

The knife was dropped during an altercation whilst he was helping his brother collecting a debt from a 63yr old in a car park, should have served time

Some great racing today !
And quite a few mishaps - fortunately everyone escaped relatively unharmed, I think.

BSB post race-1 interviews were interesting to see:
Redding was - me me me me.
Ray was - team team me team
Brooke's was - opposition opposition team me

Says a lot to me about the characters of these guys.
