Two-time Bennetts British Superbike king Josh Brookes will want to pull three good results out of the bag at this weekend's Thruxton round to keep his chances of a Shwodown spot alive.
The MCE Ducati rider is hoping to bounce back from two uncharacteristic crashes at Brands Hatch which saw him drop to 11th in the championship table with only the top eight able to qualify.
“I’m eager to get down to Thruxton and to get going again after the two crashes at Brands Hatch which was less than ideal," said the Australian.
"Despite that disappointment, we still have an upward trend in the garage and the motivation is there, so we’ll keep pushing.
"It’s better to be fighting for the podium and to crash out rather than languishing down the order. Everything is still positive, and we have some changes to make this weekend which I’m excited about so we’re ready to go.”
