I’m really pleased to announce that I will be racing with PBM on the BeWiser Ducati for the 2019 British Superbike season. PBM have been the benchmark during much of my time in BSB and have always set the bar very high. With Shakey being my arch-rival, I never really saw myself riding alongside him but when things changed, it became a real consideration, although I wish him a full recovery. The Be Wiser Ducati V4 will be an awesome bike and I’m excited to be a part of this, and to start winning regularly again. I know the team will be at the forefront once again in 2019 and I’m really looking forward to this challenge.Read More
After confirming his place in the 2018 Showdown at last weeks Silverstone Round, Josh Brookes currently sits 3rd in the standings.
This weekend sees the first of the ‘Showdown’ rounds kick off at Oulton Park.
“We need to go into these races, as a team, making no mistakes, no DNFs and of course the most obvious one is win some races. I know what it takes, I’ve been here before many times. I’ve won a championship. I know what’s involved. We’ve just got to put that knowledge into practice.”
Josh Brookes will be back to ride the Classic TT this year with the Wiz Norton Racing Team. Returning for a second year, alongside Richard Wilson to ride the WRS 588 Norton Rotary based on the JPS works Motorcycle produced for racing in 1989-1994.
‘‘I’m looking forward to being back at The Classic. I enjoy riding the bike because the rotary engine is something i’ve had a keen interest in for years. Even the noise of it is unique and it seems to always have a big following of the fans. My goal this year is to match the 123.3mph lap time of Steve Hislop in 1992 when he won one of the memorable TT races of all time.”
Josh will race the Classic Superbike Race on UK Bank holiday Monday 27th August.
It’s fantastic to get the double for Yamaha on the R1’s 20th anniversary.
I said I would shave off my mustache if I won both races at Brands Hatch. I’m a man of my word and as ive done the double I would like to see a charity to be the beneficiary of all its attention. I think it’s most fitting if I pick the well known Movember Charity who are tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention in men. If you would like to watch the shave off you can do so on my Facebook page or to donate, you can do so here… https://www.facebook.com/donate/234520637168757/?fundraiser_source=external_urlRead More
