Fresh from his four consecutive wins in the British Superbike Championship, Josh Brookes made his mark on the German IDM Superbike series by scoring a podium at Assen.

Joining the MGM Yamaha team for a guest outing around the Dutch circuit - before BSB visits itself in September -, Brookes notched up a third place finish in the first race of the weekend before finishing fourth in the second.

A chance to get acquainted with the circuit on board the new Yamaha R1 before Assen hosts the first round of the all-important Title Showdown, Brookes will resume BSB action on the Milwaukee Yamahha at Cadwell Park on 23rd August.
