Brookes is fastest as Showdown race heats up

Saturday, October 05 2019

2015 Bennetts British Superbike Champion Josh Brookes was fastest in this morning's free practice session at Donington Park, beating his Be Wiser Ducati teammate and current championship leader Scott Redding by 0.387s at the last gasp.

Fellow Showdown contender Peter Hickman set an early flying lap but the Ducatis were soon leading the timings, with Redding going ahead first before Brookes edged him out.

All four top spots were occupied by Showdown contenders at the chequered flag, with Danny Buchan joining Brookes, Redding and Hickman to record the fourth fastest time of the morning.

Bennetts BSB action continues this afternoon with qualifying at 4pm, followed by two races tomorrow in the penultimate round of the 2015 championship.
