Brookes to ride Superstock on MotoGP stage

The British Superbike title contender will ride the HM Plant Honda Superstock during the British Grand Prix support event at Silverstone
Josh Brookes is to return to his Superstock roots when MotoGP arrives at Silverstone this month after being given the opportunity to participate in the support event.

Taking the place of the injured Steve Plater on the HM Plant Honda machine, Brookes will get the opportunity to ride the new Arena layout of the Silverstone circuit before British Superbikes returns later in the season.

The first time he has competed on a Superstock bike since racing in his native Australia, Brookes is excited about the prospect of competing on a high-profile stage.

"I am really fired up and definitely want to put on a good show for the crowd there. We know the HM Plant Honda is a proven race winner, Steve (Plater) showed that before he was injured so I want to go out and do the best job I can for the team.

“The Superstock Honda is not too dissimilar to what I raced when I was in the Australian Superbike Championship a few years ago as their regulations are different from BSB, so it's a case of get to grips with the new track then give the other guys hell!"
