Josh Brookes and Alastair Seeley aiming high at Brands

'I'm not a great lover of the Indy circuit. The bits that make up the GP circuit I love, but not the rest, although you don't have to like a circuit to go fast at it' - Josh Brookes
Tyco TAS Suzuki's Josh Brookes is chasing a positive start to his MCE British Superbike title challenge at Brands Hatch this weekend.

The Australian rider admits he is not a lover of the Indy circuit in Kent, but that will not stop him from riding the wheels of his GSX-R1000.

I'm happy with everything as it stands at the moment. I now just want to get out and see how fast we can run in the conditions on Saturday and Sunday by going faster or maintaining top spot,” said Brookes.

“I'm not a great lover of the Indy circuit. The bits that make up the GP circuit I love, but not the rest, although you don't have to like a circuit to go fast at it.

“I'd certainly rather be somewhere where my Superbike could stretch its legs, but we'll deal with the situation and on Monday, try to get the best out of the opening two races to start the year positively.”

Reigning British Supersport champion Seeley is determined to mix it up with the established BSB big guns after an encouraging pre-season.

“I'm really looking forward to four days on track. I want to get in amongst the boys who are supposed to be the quickest in BSB and do my best to match them,” he said.

“Two one-hour sessions on Friday will certainly let us know straight away where we are with the new GSX-R1000 Superbike, and also let us see the progress we've made since the first test of the year.

“The whole set-up looks superb from the bikes, the garage, right through to the hospitality unit. Everyone is already talking about it. Hopefully I can match that on track this weekend.”
