Josh Brookes has added to his Superbike and Senior TT roster for TT 2018 as his McAMS BSB team have announced they will field bikes for the Australian in the Supersport and Superstock classes.
Brookes is already signed to ride with Norton in the two blue riband races and is keen to get in as much track time as possible when this year’s TT kicks off at the end of this month.
“I’m obviously keen to ride as many classes as possible, to test myself on different machinery and just as importantly to continue to build up my TT course knowledge, which you can only do with extended track time,” said Brookes.
It took a while to come together but I’m really happy to be riding a YZF-R6 and YZF-R1 in team colours, the Supersport bike especially has been really strong previously. Ideally we’ll get good weather during practice week and get used to these two very different bikes.”
The McAMS team have already won four Supersport TTs with Ian Hutchinson and are running a Superstock bike in the Pirelli National Championship.
