Josh Brookes Finishes 2013 On a High With Brands Hatch Triple

Posted:

Josh Brookes finished off the 2013 British Superbike season with a dominant hat-trick of wins from two pole positions at Brands Hatch on his Tyco Suzuki GSX-R1000.

Brookes followed up his win on Saturday with one of the greatest victories witnessed at a Brands Hatch BSB event, coming from 16 seconds behind to win Sunday‰Ûªs opening encounter.

Brookes then went on to take a lights-to-flag third race win from pole position, securing him third place in this year‰Ûªs championship on the final day of racing for 2013.

‰ÛÏMy attitude was that the championship was out of our hands going into Brands, so I went into the weekend wanting to finish the year on a high." Brookes explained. "I wanted to try and elevate the image of the team and the spirit of the mechanics and crew as we‰Ûªve had a couple of tough weekends.

There was no game plan, I just wanted to do my best for the team and all our sponsors, so two pole positions and three wins on the Tyco Suzuki was ideal.

I want to thank the team and everyone involved for their support this year. We‰Ûªve finished the year on a high going into the off-season and a long winter away from racing so I‰Ûªm pretty happy," he concluded.

Team Manager Philip Neill was understandably ecstatic with the way the 2013 finished

‰ÛÏWhat a way to end our season." Neill enthused. "The BSB Championship really does present the most exciting racing and today was no different.

"Josh once again proved his capability by mastering the damp conditions and the GSX-R1000 worked perfectly throughout the weekend. It is of course a shame that our championship hopes where realistically over before we reached Brands; however, our first BSB treble victory certainly leaves us feeling positive.

‰ÛÏI would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every member of our team and also our sponsors, Tyco Security Products, Suzuki and all our loyal partners for their continued support. I would also like to congratulate former TAS Racing team member Tom Sykes on becoming World Superbike Champion today," Neill concluded.
