Josh Brookes is turning his attentions to his forthcoming World Superbike wild-card at Silverstone after winning two of the weekend's three British Superbike races at Snetterton.
The in-form HM Plant Honda rider notched up victories three and four at Snetterton after winning the race carried over from Knockhill before capitalising on retirements for team-mate Ryuichi Kiyonari and Michael Rutter in the second.
While it was Brookes's turn to experience technical issues in race three around the Norfolk circuit – thus forcing him to concede the lead of the standings to triple podium winner Tommy Hill again -, he was pleased with his showing over the weekend ahead of what he hopes will be a similarly strong outing on the world stage.
“In the second race I had another bad start and made my way through; I saw Kiyo seemed to be having problems so knew I didn't have to make a pass. He retired and then I had Michael ahead of me and knew I had the time to catch him, but then he pulled off too.
“I just kept steady away and then just held it to take the win which was a great result for me and HM Plant Honda.
“In race two everything was going well and I was stuck behind James for a few laps and then Kiyo got involved and I maintained the position as I knew Kiyo was quick after we got by Ellison.
“We just had an engine problem which put me out, which was disappointing but I know we can come back strong at Silverstone for the World Superbike Championship round.”
