Milwaukee Yamaha Previews This Coming Weekend's British Superbike Event At Oulton Park

Milwaukee Yamaha's Tommy Bridewell (46).


The Milwaukee Yamaha team are targeting their first victory of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship season this Bank Holiday weekend (3/4/5 May) as Josh Brookes and Tommy Bridewell bid for the top step of the podium at Oulton Park in Cheshire.

Brookes scored his first podium finish with the team at the Brands Hatch opening round after claiming the first pole start of the 2014 season and is now hunting his first win for the Guisborough-based team. Bridewell meanwhile is geared up to turn around his fortunes from Brands Hatch and return to the fight for the podium ahead of the two races on Bank Holiday Monday.

Brookes said: “Brands Hatch was good for us apart from the obvious crashes, but now we are ready for Oulton Park. I have seen from previous years how strong the Yamaha is around that track, especially from the years racing against Tommy Hill - it is set in stone in my memory. I want to be able to emulate that pace and speed this weekend and that is the aim. Normally a few crashes on the same weekend would hinder your confidence, but it hasn’t knocked it at all so I am looking forward to getting to Oulton Park because these races can’t come soon enough.”

Bridewell said: “Brands Hatch wasn’t an ideal start for me but we have had the chance to reflect on that now and have looked at all the angles ready for Oulton Park. If you look at previous years and who won eventually, the results at the first round didn’t affect the championship. I feel better about Oulton Park and I look at the success the team have had there previously and that is a huge positive for us before we get started. The first round didn’t go as well as I had hoped but Oulton Park is more a territory that should be good for us and I know we can turn it around and fight at the front.”
