Brookes back for round two.

Having missed the Brands Hatch ViSK British Superbike Championship season opener due to visa problems, Josh Brookes will make his 2009 debut for HM Plant Honda at this weekend's Oulton Park round.

The Australian is already 45 points behind early title leader Sylvain Guintoli (Suzuki), with team-mate Glen Richards presently third on 31 points.

Steve Plater, who replaced Brookes at Brands Hatch, scored 16 points for a third place finish in race two.

Brookes' return ends rumours that he would be replaced.

What a quaint idea: "Brookes' return ends rumours that he would be replaced". Get a grip there. This is Crash Net Comments Posts. It'll take more than a minor technical detail of such sort to quash perfectly good speculations about Greg Lavilla, Steve Plater and Guy Martin's sister. And The HM Plant Honda ride of course. :p One trip to the gravel patch, a slow start, wrong colour socks.... the list of possibilities is infinite.
