Show­down scrap is on

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

It’s fair to say the 2017 BSB sea­son hasn’t shaped up quite as Brookes would have wanted. With­out a win to his name from seven rounds, he does how­ever have 129 points in the bag, thanks to a strong show­ing at Snet­ter­ton and Brands, leav­ing him fifth in the ti­tle chase.

Shane Byrne’s dom­i­nance has con­tin­ued in 2017, with the Du­cati man win­ning the last four races. He leads the cham­pi­onship with 190 points, from the JG Speed­fit Kawasaki duo of Luke Mossey and Leon Haslam, on 161 and 159 points re­spec­tively.

Ja­son O’halloran sits just above Brookes in the stand­ings, on 133 points, with sixth place man Peter Hick­man snap­ping at Brookes’ heels on 119. Thrux­ton could well pro­vide a se­ri­ous shake-up for the top six.
