TYCO SUZUKI MEN EYE OULTON BSB TRIPLE-HEADER
Team Suzuki Press Office – August 9.
Following victory at Brands Hatch last time out, and his preceding Suzuka 8-Hour podium, Tyco Suzuki team leader Josh Brookes is fired-up and ready for the British Superbike Championship triple header this weekend at Oulton Park.
Team mate PJ Jacobsen also had a strong weekend in the BSB series at Brands Hatch with fifth and eighth placed finishes, and the young American would like nothing better than a belated 20th Birthday present with another strong weekend at Oulton Park.
In British Supersport, Taylor Mackenzie continues to show promise on the team’s GSX-R600 Suzuki, and like his more experienced team-mates, the young Scottish rider will be looking for solid results this weekend.
“After finally getting our first win of the season last time out at Brands, I’m confident we can be up there fighting for more wins this weekend at Oulton Park. We have been consistent all season with podiums and have continued to make progress with our GSX-R1000 Superbike, so the Oulton plan will be to continue with that progress all round and put in three good performances.”
“Brands was a good weekend for us and it certainly helped that I’d ridden there before. The plan now is to work towards hanging onto that front group like we did last time out and be consistent with our results in or around the top six.”
Philip Neill – Team Manager:
“There are a lot of positives to take out of the season so far and especially Brands Hatch for all three riders. It was good for Josh to get that win at Brands but as I’ve always said, at this time of the season, consistency is the key factor and will be of paramount importance this weekend for both Josh and PJ at Oulton. Taylor is starting to show his true potential on what is proving to be a good strong package with the GSX-R600. Oulton has given us mixed results in the past but is a great circuit with a strong fan base and a great atmosphere.”
