Josh Brookes took Pole, the lap record and two wins at Thruxton over the weekend. All good stuff (and what is known in the racing world as the ‘Gentleman’s set’).


It was the Aussie Yamaha star’s second consecutive double victory, so you’d expect a celebration.

And Brookesey was properly up for a big burnout at the end of the do, so did one on the exit of the final chicane.

Kind of worked, until he dropped it. Gotta be careful mate – it’s slippery there, you could end up on your arse. Here’s the video of that oops moment. Listen to the crowd!
