Brookes considers 2010 offers

Josh Brookes reveals he is considering offers to race in British Superbikes or World Superbikes next season
Josh Brookes says he is yet to decide whether his future is in British Superbikes or World Superbikes as he considers offers from both series' for the 2010 season.

Brookes, who raced on the global stage for three years, switched to the British Superbike Championship with HM Plant Honda in 2009, the Australian finishing fourth in the overall standings, despite missing three events and failing to win a race.

Nonetheless, having stood on the podium on ten occasions, Brookes says he has courted a significant amount of interest from teams, both on the national and international scene.

However, he is also keen to wait for HM Plant Honda's decision on him, stating he would be keen to remain in BSB with the factory team.

"Everyone is thinking about 2010 but at the moment everyone is in the same position; it is just a waiting game,” he told the BSB website. “I have got a few teams that have offered me something for next year but until all the budgets in place nothing is confirmed.

“I want to see what the HM Plant Honda team are doing, as I would quite like to stay with them and with Honda UK but I also have a few other options with teams in BSB and also in Worlds."

Brookes competed in the World Superbike Championship in 2006 and 2007 with Bertocchi Kawasaki and Alto Evolution Honda before switching to the World Supersport Championship with Stiggy Honda in 2008.

I cant believe people are still going on about those accidents. Get over it! The guy made a couple of mistakes, got banned and served his time. He proved himself to be a top rider this year and I for one hope he stays in the UK next year to challenge for the title.

Stay in BSB and get beaten by Easton, Hill and Ellison, or go to WSBK and get beaten by Rea, Camier, Crutchlow, Toseland, Haslam and honorary Brits like Haga, Corser, Guintoli! Either way, Josh ain't no Bayliss and will be fed up of chasing British rear ends (on the track - i'm not making a homophobic slur!)
