Brookes ready to ‘boost championship potential’ at Knockhill

09 July 2021

Josh Brookes is set for a fight back at Knockhill this weekend for the second round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship (July 10-11) as the defending champion bids to surge back up the order in the standings.

Brookes arrives in Scotland sitting seventh in the overall standings, but the reigning champion remains unfazed by the opening round and is heading into this weekend hungry to fight back for a return to the podium.

Brookes said: “I’m looking forward to Knockhill where we know we have made some improvements at the pre-season tests. Our lap times at those tests were very competitive so I know we have lots of potential at this track. It’s not my favourite track but now I have a good setting, I like it a lot more.

“I’m hoping for some good results to boost my championship potential. I’m not at all deflated after Oulton Park, we have started seasons with a lot worse results and still won championships, so we aren’t dwelling on that, I’m feeling confident ahead of these next three races now.”
