Silverstone BSB: 'The pace has obviously moved on' - Brookes

Former Bennetts British Superbike king Josh Brookes only collected eight points from yesterday's Silverstone season opener after going to the track with 'high expectations.'

The PBM Ducati man took a brace of podiums last year in what was his most difficult BSB season but despite matching his times from 2021, could only muster a best result of 11th.

Life for team mate Tom Sykes was worse as he scored half as many points and suffered a big highside in race two.


“We came here with high expectations particularly as we took two podiums last year but whilst we’ve been able to match our times from 2021, the pace has obviously moved on," said Brookes.

"We had a few issues in the last race so can’t really use that as a reference but we need to try a few things at the Oulton Park test next week to try and improve both the grip and the lap times.

"We tried a few settings this weekend and did make progress but not enough clearly, so we’ve got work to do.

"The test obviously has more importance now but it’s a circuit I like and suits the Ducati, so we’ll be working hard to get back to where we need to be.”
