Australian Josh Brookes is the most successful rider on the current Bennetts BSB grid, celebrating over 50 race wins and two title victories with the first in 2015 and the most recent in 2020.
‘Bad Boy’ Brookes first raced in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2009, having started competing in his native Australia, winning domestic titles before moving onto the World stage in both the Superbike and Supersport classes.
Brookes had his first appearance in British Championship action in 2008, competing for Honda Racing in the Supersport class at the final round of the season, before joining the team in the Superbike class the following year.
Since then Brookes has also competed with several of the key manufacturers, finishing runner-up four times and has competed in every Showdown apart from 2016 when he had a season in the World Championship.
With an impressive tally of 54 race wins, Brookes is the most successful contender in the 2022 Bennetts BSB rider line-up and the double British Champion remains with the team for a fourth consecutive season as he targets a third crown.
