Brookes targets victories only at Oulton Park

The HM Plant Honda rider eyes victory in the three races at Oulton Park as he bids to overhaul Tommy Hill for the BSB title.
Josh Brookes is keeping his targets simple as he readies himself for the 2010 British Superbike Championship showdown at Oulton Park.

Though he is yet to win any of the four 'shootout' races so far, Brookes has closed back to within 11 points of leader Tommy Hill with three races remaining.

The Australian is feeling confident about his chances though having enjoyed a strong outing at Silverstone, Brookes hoping his experience of title showdowns will give him the edge over his rivals.

“We are in a stronger position going into the final round than we were going into Silverstone so we are feeling confident ahead of Oulton Park,” he said. “The pressure is now on everyone, but I have been in a similar position before so for me I will just do what I have done at every other round; turn up with the intention of winning.

All of us will be riding at the top of our game at Oulton Park, every point is so important and could mean the difference between being champion and losing out. Simply in my own mind I have to win; it just has to happen.”

Brookes finished sixth and eighth on the first visit to Oulton Park earlier this season.

I understand where Brookes is coming from. His problem is everyone else: Kiyo - I've done this twice before. I have the talent. I will win Rutter - If it rains and I stay cool I'll win Laverty - So long as can fend Hill off on the straights I'll get him on the corners and I'll win. Hill - I've probably won. Just got to not do anything stupid. Ellison - I'll show you Kntz :p

Very astute post Sillius Soddus. Are you positive about James Ellison? Good luck to Josh Brookes, he is the only aussie. Hoping for lots of good close races & no deaths this weekend.
