Josh Brookes is gearing up for the first of two world stage racing appearances, starting with MotoGP at Silverstone this weekend and then with a wild card entry at the British round of the World Superbike Championship, also at Silverstone, at the end of July.

This weekend‰Ûªs two-wheel British Grand Prix will see British Superbike ace Josh Brookes compete in the British Superstock championship‰Ûªs two races ‰ÛÒ which take place as a support class to the main MotoGP race - as a stand-in for injured team-mate Steve Plater.

The gutsy Aussie rider comes to this race hot off the back of an impressive first British Championship win at Cadwell Park, which moved him into second place in the hotly contested BSB championship and he is now aiming to make history as the British Superstock championship races for the first time on the all-new Silvertsone Arena circuit.

Josh and team-mate Ryuichi Kiyonari will then both take to the track on their HM Plant Honda Superbike Fireblades at Silverstone over the weekend of 31 July/1 August, where the team will compete in the popular World Superbike series.

Josh said, ‰ÛÏIt has been a long few weeks since the last round of BSB at Cadwell Park and I have really missed being out on the track, so this weekend can‰Ûªt come soon enough for me. I have been keeping myself sharp with motocross and then had a trip to the TT to support the boys, but there is nothing like being out on the track, so now I am feeling really up for it. It is obviously a shame for Steve as he had such a good start to the season, but I know how good the Honda CBR1000RR is, so there is no reason why we shouldn‰Ûªt be able to fight for the wins this weekend. I‰Ûªm really fired up for taking part in the World Superbike event as well and it will be great to also have Kiyo racing there too so we‰Ûªre a full team.‰Û
