Parkes to join Brookes at Milwaukee Yamaha in 2015
Milwaukee Yamaha team confirm Australian duo for 2015
Parkes will move to the BSB paddock for the 2015 season
BROC Parkes is set to join fellow Australian Josh Brookes at Milwaukee Yamaha next year in the British Superbike Championship.
2015 will become Parkes’ first full season in the Championship after a wildcard in 2009 at Brands Hatch where he finished second in all three races of that particular weekend.
The 32-year-old Australian said: "I am really looking forward to next season with the Milwaukee Yamaha team.
“In the past I have had some great results with Yamaha and to be a part of the project with the new R1 is a real privilege. There have already been a lot of good reports so I am excited about 2015.”
"The level of competition is really high in the championship - they are like World Champions on their own tracks,” explained Parkes.
“I know I have to learn them, but I want to do as much as I can before the season so I am in the best possible position. I want to be in the top six for the Showdown and I will be bringing my 'A-Game' with me!"
Parkes completed a season in MotoGP in 2014 with Paul Bird Motorsport in which he finished twenty-third. Previously to that, the Australian competed in the World Supersport Championship in which he scored six race wins along with 26 podium finishes and finished Championship runner-up twice.
Speaking about the 2015 Milwaukee Team, Team Owner Shaun Muir commented: "It is a very exciting time for the team with the release of the new YZF-R1, which has created a huge amount of interest and anticipation for 2015.
"The team will be working hard to develop the new bike and we are delighted to have Broc onboard. He brings a huge amount of experience to the team, with an extensive career in the World Championships, and has serious determination in equal measure to succeed.
"He has raced with Yamaha before in the World Supersport Championship, and we are now looking forward to him returning to the Superbike class with Yamaha," concluded Muir.
