Brookes gunning for second MCE BSB title at Brands Hatch

Tuesday, October 10 2017

Josh Brookes heads to Brands Hatch this weekend (13-15 October) for the title-deciding round of the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship fully focused on victory as he bids to seal a second title crown.

The Anvil Hire TAG Yamaha rider trails series leader Leon Haslam by 32 points ahead of this weekend's title decider but the bullish Australian is determined to try and regain ground and snatch the title back that he won in 2015.

Brookes said: "The emphasis at Brands Hatch is going to be more for me to win and then hope that we are lucky as mathematically there is a gap in the points between myself and Leon.

"We can only focus on the job we can do and that is to go to Brands Hatch and try and win all three races. Any position this season is hard to achieve as it is so close but we need to bring the most energy, focus and determination to Brands Hatch and hope that we have that luck.

"I think looking ahead to the weekend we should all reflect on the battle between Tommy Hill and John Hopkins because I think the final round will be reminiscent of that. Whoever it is between at the end I think the racing is going to be brilliant and it certainly won't let the fans down!"
