Brookes Looks Ahead To Assen BSB

Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes will start his 2013 British Superbike Championship Showdown account at Assen in the Netherlands in a fortnight's time, just 17 points behind series leader Shane Byrne.

GSX-R1000-mounted Brookes finished fourth and fifth in Sunday's British Superbike races at Donington Park with team-mate PJ Jacobsen taking ninth place in both races on his British Superbike debut at the Leicestershire venue.

Josh Brookes:

"I'm pretty disappointed with the results. This time last year my lap times were good enough to win both races and I went faster this weekend and didn't get much for mine or the team's efforts. We just didn't get the best out of the bike today, but it's disappointing, as I've probably ridden as hard, or harder, than I have in the past to win races and we get fourth and fifth. I was pushing the front way-past where I should have been and got away with it, yet at Cadwell, I was doing the opposite and crashed. I know the team is working as hard as it can; and if we look at the bigger picture, it's not that bad, but it has been frustrating for everyone today."

PJ Jacobsen:

"This weekend I gained more experience at a Grand Prix-type circuit both setting-up and riding a Superbike. It's a totally different animal than 12 months ago riding the GSX-R1000 Superstock bike, but I think overall, two top-10 finishes is a good account from my side of the Tyco Suzuki garage. Next up is Assen, which I really enjoy riding. Hopefully we can give a good account and get closer to those front guys."

Philip Neill - Team Manager:

"In terms of our Championship Challenge, today was very disappointing, that's for sure. Although our pace was quite good all weekend, we simply were not fast enough over race distance to challenge the podium positions. In the coming days we will analyse everything possible to understand why this was the case. Of course we still intend to fight for this Championship. However, we have some work to do before Assen to ensure we are back at the front challenging for race wins.

"PJ had a steady weekend as he continues to learn the art of finding the best possible set-up with a Superbike over a race weekend. His results were satisfying considering the company he is racing against."
