Brookes wins war of the Wolds

Monday, August 30 2010

HM Plant Honda's Josh Brookes fought his way to victory in the second MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship race of the day at Cadwell Park, to get the better of Worx Crescent Suzuki's Tommy Hill as the Title Fighters now brace themselves for the Showdown.

Brookes took the hole shot off the line to lead the pack on the opening lap but Hill was down the inside of the HM Plant Honda at Park to take the advantage, the move sent Brookes wide and Kiyonari then went for the gap to move second. The HM Plant Honda riders were tagged on the back wheel of Hill and the trio were then waiting to attack.

Brookes waited until the ninth lap to get the better of team-mate Kiyonari by getting the run into Hall Bends after getting a spectacular launch off the Mountain, to pass on the outside in sensational style. He then took the lead three laps later by repeating the move on Hill to take the lead. The race was then red flagged with four laps remaining when James Edmeades crashed heavily at Mansfield.

Michael Laverty maintained his fourth place on the Relentless Suzuki as he edged clear of Michael Rutter in fourth on the Ridersmotorcycles.com Ducati, who put himself ahead of James Ellison on the twelfth lap. Yukio Kagayama moved to seventh on the second of the Worx Crescent Suzukis whilst Tommy Bridewell made amends for his race one disqualification in eighth.

Relentless Suzuki's Alastair Seeley secured his position as the final Title Fighter in the Showdown in ninth with Gary Mason rounding out the top ten.
