Josh Brookes has confirmed he will enter the Supertwins class at the 2023 Isle of Man TT alongside his Superbike and Superstock campaigns.

The Australian returns to the Mountain for what will be his fifth TT outing but his first since 2018 when he competed with Norton.

For 2023, Brookes has capitalised on his new relationship with FHO Racing in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) to secure a spot in the Superbike/Senior TT and Superstock running order on the Monster Energy backed BMW M 1000 RR.


However, just two days before the TT kicks off with practice on 29 May [Monday], the 56-time BSB race winner has secured a ride in the Supertwins class on the Dafabet Kawasaki Z650.

“With coming back [to the TT] after a few years, the plan was for me to just focus on riding the one bike, but I got the call from the team and it’s hard to turn down an offer on such a competitive bike," he said.

"I’m looking forward to trying it out and seeing how we get on, and I want to say thanks to Roy and Ben [Constable] for bringing me in and to Faye [Ho] for letting me take on another class.”

“We’re absolutely delighted that we have got Josh on board for the TT," Roy Constable, Team Co-owner, added. "To have a rider of his undoubted calibre and experience on our Kawasaki Z650 is a massive achievement and shows the credibility our team still holds.

"I’d like to say thank you to Faye (FHO Racing) for allowing us to borrow Josh for these races and to the Isle of Man organisers and Kawasaki for getting us back on the grid. I’d also like to wish Gary all the best and hope he gets well soon.”

Brookes, currently third in the 2023 BSB standings after three rounds after wins at Silverstone and Oulton Park, has a best TT result of sixth place achieved twice in 2017 on in the Senior TT on the Norton and the Lightweights (now Supertwins) class on a Kawasaki ER6.
