Anvil TAG Yamaha’s Josh Brookes will be re-united with crew chief Stewart Winton at this weekend’s Knockhill MCE British Superbike round.
The forthright Scotsman played a key part in Brookes 2015 championship win and the pair are hoping to make setup improvments to the R1 which will allow the team to fight for podium positions again.
“As we finished up at Oulton Park I wasn’t happy with the results and we needed to focus on making the bike a little better. This weekend we have the presence of Stuart Winton, who was my crew chief in 2015, so he’s giving us a hand and will help us in the right direction with the bike,” said Brookes.
“Things to need to improve with the machine, if we look at the results from the last round it’s not what I’m used to achieving in the MCE British Superbike Championship, it’s important that we focus on the areas of the bike that are requiring improvement, and I’m ready to see what changes the team have made.
“Knockhill isn’t a circuit I look forward to racing at, it isn’t a bad layout, the lap is just too short. It’s a shame because the corners that are there are fun to ride, but it can get monotonous on a Superbike.
“I want to like the track but I haven’t had the results there that I’m searching for, which leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. I’ve got to go there with the same outlook as every weekend, there all equally important and I’m hoping I can put things right at Knockhill and we can get some good results.”
