Milwaukee Yamaha's Josh Brookes delivered an impressive second victory at Cadwell Park edging out his MCE British Superbike Championship title rivals to extend his points advantage in the overall standings and move ahead of Shane 'Shakey' Byrne in the Podium Points tally. The battle to be inside the top six has also intensified with just three races at Oulton Park now remaining before the Showdown.

Brookes maintained his incredible pace in race two and he instantly hit the front of the pack on the opening lap with Luke Mossey, Peter Hickman and Byrne in close contention. The rider on the attack though was Tommy Bridewell after he was denied a podium finish in the opening race on the final lap. The Tyco BMW rider was pushing the defending champion hard and he made a calculated move at Park corner on the fourth lap to move into fourth position.

Mossey in second place was equally coming under pressure from home hero Hickman and the Quattro Plant Kawasaki rider made an error into the Chicane, running on and then rejoined but dropped back to third and then was passed by Bridewell at Coppice a lap later.

The second Tyco BMW of Michael Laverty had been closing in, but on the twelfth lap he slid out of contention at the Chicane, leaving Hickman, Bridewell, Mossey and Byrne to battle for the final two podium positions.

Bridewell was fired up for another move and a lap later he pushed ahead of Hickman at Park to hit second place, however the RAF Reserves BMW rider wasn't going to give up on second place without a fight to the finish. Hickman retaliated on the final lap at the Chicane to reclaim the position with the pair still able to keep a closing Byrne at bay as he failed to finish on the podium for the first time this season.

Mossey held on to fifth despite the best efforts of race one podium finisher Billy McConnell's best efforts to snatch the position. Richard Cooper improved to seventh on the leading Buildbase BMW whilst Danny Buchan, James Westmoreland and Dan Linfoot completed the top ten.

Brookes said: "I am sorry I just went out the front and led the whole race, but I just wanted to get out there and not let up and keep going. It is easy to make mistakes and lose concentration when you are not in a battle. In a battle you are fighting for every corner so you don't lose concentration, so I wanted to be smooth and calculated so I kept it pinned and rode it to the flag. I am really pleased for the Milwaukee Yamaha team and everything is all working really well now so we are ready for Oulton Park!"

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.
