BSB Round 7 - Thruxton

Josh Brookes leaves Thruxton as the man to beat in the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship as the Milwaukee Yamaha contender continued his winning momentum by claiming a double victory in Hampshire. The Australian now leads Shane 'Shakey' Byrne in the standings by 12 points ahead of Cadwell Park.

Brookes again hit the front of the pack on the opening lap in his bid to continue his winning run ahead of John Hopkins and Byrne with Dan Linfoot, Danny Buchan and Howie Mainwaring in close contention.

Hopkins was hunting Brookes for the lead but the Australian was desperately trying to make the break from the pack. Linfoot was pushing forward though and the Honda Racing rider moved ahead of Byrne on the third lap to displace the defending champion to fourth.

Byrne then came under attack from Mainwaring and the Quattro Plant Kawasaki rider made a move to claim the advantage, but as the pair approached the Club Chicane, the defending champion made a lunge to reclaim the position. The pair continued to dice for fourth until the Nissan GT-R Safety Car was deployed when Jack Kennedy crashed out at Campbell.

The race resumed on the 15 lap and with five laps remaining and the pack bunched up the battle intensified. Mossey had a flying start at the restart and he moved second ahead of Linfoot. Hopkins crashed out a lap later at the Chicane unhurt, ending his chances of a podium finish. Byrne was not prepared to give up on the podium without a fight and he also made a pass on Linfoot to move third behind Mossey as the pair then scrapped it out for the podium finishes.

On the 18th of 20 laps Byrne had moved second, but MCE BSB rookie Mossey retaliated instantly - pulling an impressive move on the PBM Kawasaki rider by taking the outside line into the Club Chicane. The defending champion repaid the move a lap later by drafting down the inside into the final chicane as they fought for the positions to the bitter end.

Mossey moved back ahead of Byrne at Brooklands only for the four-time champion to take it back on the run out of Church. The Quattro Plant Kawasaki rider was looking for a final chance at the Club Chicane but Byrne defended hard to hold second as Brookes secured the victory.

Tommy Bridewell bounced back from his huge race one crash to claim fourth place and move back inside the top six in the standings for Tyco BMW, holding off Linfoot and his team-mate Michael Laverty.

Mainwaring continued his best event of the season in seventh place ahead of Martin Jessopp who claimed his strongest finish whilst Lee Jackson and Josh Waters completed the top ten.

Josh Brookes has been desperately hunting his first win of the season for Milwaukee Yamaha and at Brands Hatch the Australian did it in style by claiming the double win, beating a battered Shane 'Shakey' Byrne in the second  race to be crowned the Monster Energy King of Brands.

Byrne led off the pole position after the PBM Kawasaki team got him back on track after his huge 150mph crash in the opening race; he led the pack from Brookes, James Ellison and Richard Cooper. On the opening lap Cooper made his move on the JG Speedfit Kawasaki ahead of him and the pair then continued to dice for the position.

Brookes was hunting his rival though and was shadowing him over the opening laps and then when it came to the eighth lap the Milwaukee Yamaha contender pulled a move at Druids to hit the front of the pack.

Brookes was holding off Byrne, but behind the chasing pack were also ready to make their move with Cooper, Ellison and the Tyco BMWs of Tommy Bridewell and Michael Laverty. However for Bridewell his efforts were in vain and he crashed out unhurt at Surtees.

Byrne was trying to regain the lead but Brookes had the edge to claim his second win of the day from his fierce title rival, but Cooper again showed impressive form to score his best result of his career on the Anvil Hire TAG Kawasaki ahead of Ellison.

Brookes said: "We've gone this far into the season and haven't been able to win and then we get two in the one day, it's pretty awesome feeling. It's a team environment, the guys have worked so hard to make the bike better for me each round and at the start of the season I said - and I was briefed by Yamaha to be patient - the bike will get better. When you wait for something you really appreciate it and the bike worked really well by race day. To come from a double-win and go to a track I like, it's given us confidence for Thruxton too, so hopefully things work well for us there again."

Laverty held on to fifth ahead of Smiths BMW's Billy McConnell who rewarded the team with their best MCE BSB result in sixth. Luke Mossey had his strongest weekend of his campaign with a seventh place after holding off the charging Christian Iddon on the Bennetts Suzuki. Jason O'Halloran for Honda Racing and Broc Parkes completed the top ten.
