Josh Brookes, winner of both Superstock races at the Silverstone MotoGP round, can't wait to return to the 'brilliant' new track layout for WSBK and BSB competition.
The Australian was the first ever rider to win on the newly configured track during Saturday's Superstock race, then battled to the front of the field on Sunday to claim a double victory at the circuit's inaugural bike event.
Following his win on Saturday, Brookes watched the start of the MotoGP race from the air, taking in aerial views of the circuit by helicopter.
“It's great; it's spot on, exactly what a proper international circuit should be,” declared the HM Plant Honda rider.
“There were places to overtake on nearly every corner of the circuit because the track is so wide, you can set up two to three corners before and then plan a pass on pretty much any corner on the circuit.
“There are other tracks where there is really only one place to make a move, and when you do it's a really desperate move, whereas here [at Silverstone] it's possible to make a lot more passes. I think it's brilliant.”
Brookes will next race at Silverstone, team-mate Ryuichi Kiyonari, as a wild card in the British round of the World Superbike Championship (30 July-1 August) and then again as part of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship on 24-26 September.
“I'm really looking forward to it now that I've had some track time and know what the circuit is like,” said Brookes. “It's something to be excited about because I know I'm coming to a great track.”
