Brookes confident more wins will follow

9 August 2013

Josh Brookes is hopeful his maiden MCE British Superbike Championship victory of the season at Brands Hatch will pave the way for more wins this weekend at Oulton Park.

The Tyco Suzuki rider, who ended the second free practice session fourth fastest on the GSX-R1000, clinched victory in race one at Brands after series leader Shane 'Shakey' Byrne slid out while challenging for the lead.

Brookes, who is third in the points standings – one point behind Samsung Honda's Alex Lowes – is high on confidence for the triple-header weekend at the Cheshire circuit.

“After finally getting our first win of the season last time out at Brands, I'm confident we can be up there fighting for more wins this weekend at Oulton Park.

“We have been consistent all season with podiums and have continued to make progress with our GSX-R1000 Superbike, so the Oulton plan will be to continue with that progress all round and put in three good performances.”

Brookes' fastest lap in FP2 at Oulton this afternoon was 1m 37.016s compared to Lowes' benchmark time of 1m 36.140s.
