Broc Parkes remains in an upbeat frame of mind after walking away from a difficult MCE British Superbike season opener at Donington Park with zero championship points on the board.

The Milwaukee Yamaha rider is now looking to make up for lost ground on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit and can take confidence from Josh Brookes' podium in the BSB curtain raiser on the new YZF-R1. The Australian rider is still adapting from MotoGP to BSB with a brand new team and machine.

"After Donington Park I really want to make up for it at Brands Hatch this weekend," Parkes said. "Normally it is a good track for me, although I have never raced on the Indy layout. I have had good results in the past in the World Championship and when I was a wildcard."

The 33-year-old has experienced the winning feeling around Brands Hatch with Yamaha in the past, albeit on the Grand Prix circuit, winning in 2006 and 2007 as a World Supersport rider.

Parkes, who has a wealth of racing experience as an ex-MotoGP, World Superbike and World Supersport racer, aims to continue learn on the new R1 and feels the results will follow.

"I am hoping we can go there and use what we have learnt from the first round and hopefully be stronger again. It has all been positive so far, it is just that it didn't quite work out at Donington."

Brands Hatch Indy circuit represents round two of the 2015 BSB season and is scheduled for the 17-19th April.
