Brookes targeting another Thruxton boost

A year after winning his first British Superbike race at Thruxton with HM Plant Honda, Josh Brookes is targeting a similar result with Relentless Suzuki this season.
Josh Brookes is hoping Thruxton will be the scene of another breakthrough result as he looks to forge his way up the British Superbike Championship standings.

The Australian has endured a difficult start to his tenure with Relentless by TAS Suzuki, Brookes qualifying outside the top ten at Brands Hatch and Croft, while two high-speed accidents have also defined the opening three events.

Nonetheless, having managed a season-best finish of fourth last time out at Croft, Brookes is aiming higher at Thruxton, scene of his first BSB podium in 2009 and also his first BSB win in 2010 – both with HM Plant Honda.

“This week we go to Thruxton which is my favourite track of the year,” Brookes, who is 12th in the standings, said. “It's where I got my first BSB podium back in 2009 and my first BSB win was at Thruxton in 2010, so let's see what it brings this year with Relentless Suzuki on the GSX-R1000.

“At Croft I rode with a safety margin in mind as I didn't want to crash again but I'm looking forward to this weekend at Thruxton to start building on my points' tally.”
