Brookes rewards Milwaukee Yamaha with double victory

Race

The Milwaukee Yamaha team celebrated a commanding double victory in the sixth round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch, closing the deficit in the overall standings to just five points and claiming the maximum ten Podium Points available.

In the opening race Brookes settled into second on the first lap and was instantly on the attack, claiming the lead by lap four and following two Safety Car interventions kept his cool to bridge the pack to win by 0.507s. Parkes narrowly missed out on the top ten in eleventh place.

In race two Brookes was determined to build on his race one win - the first victory in MCE BSB for the next generation YZF-R1. The Milwaukee Yamaha rider bided his time to hit the front on the eighth lap with a calculated move to hold the position to the finish, whilst Parkes claimed tenth place.
