Aussie Josh Brookes left himself with a mountain to climb in the second BSB race but scale it he did, bridging a five second gap from outside the top ten to pass Tommy Hill on the final lap.
The Tyco Suzuki man appears to have found some faith in the front end of his GSX-R1000 and could pass almost at will in the second race. During the opening encounter, a poor start dropped him from the front row to middle order so battling back was the order of his day. He is just two points behind Lowry in the title chase.
“That was a satisfying win. I knew from race one I could do it, but I also knew after race one I needed a good start. I messed the start up and thought immediately, ‘this is going to be tough’ especially after one lap, as I could see the leaders were so far away,” said Bringelly man.
“The team did a great job for me today and I had so much confidence in the new GSX-R that I could pass almost anywhere. Once I had a clear track I set out to make smooth fast laps with not a single mistake, because that was my only chance to catch the leaders. Once I caught them… I knew I’d win.”
