Bennetts British Superbike championship leader Josh Brookes goes into this weekend’s Assen round focus solely on winning races as the setup for his Panigale V4R is pretty much sorted.

The Australian, who is looking to add the 2019 title to the one he bagged in 2015, has a three-point lead over team-mate Scott Redding with seven races left to run.

“Assen is important for a number of reasons. Firstly, I always enjoy going over there, the whole round is unique, and I love the flowing nature of the track,” said Brookes

“I’ve had some good results there in the past and it also allows a great opportunity to really wind a Superbike up to speed with the long straights and fast corners.

“It’s clear the Be Wiser Ducati is working well and we now have a good setting which makes it a lot easier for me.

“I only have to concentrate on winning races and not worrying about the bike so I’m hoping we can continue our winning run from the last three rounds.”
