Brookes gets WSB one-off wild­card ride

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Josh Brookes will be re­united with his 2015 MCE Bri­tish Su­per­bike-win­ning YZF-R1 when he makes a one-off wild­card ap­pear­ance in the open­ing round of the Su­per­bike World Cham­pi­onship at Phillip Is­land.

De­ter­mined to prove a point after a dif­fi­cult year on the world stage with Shaun Muir’s Mil­wau­kee BMW team, Brookes – along­side long-time friend Deon Coote – has ac­quired his 2015 BSB ma­chine from Tommy Hill to com­pete in the event next month.

“This idea is par­tic­u­larly in­ter­est­ing to me be­cause I’m as in­trigued as the rest of the world to know what I can do on a Yamaha in WSB. We know the en­gine will be be­low the fac­tory spec. But it doesn’t mat­ter be­cause the point is to find out where the BSB bike would fin­ish,” Brookes ex­plained.
