BSB 2015 Assen race two results
Brooks remains victorious and adds to his podium points total
ONCE AGAIN Milwaukee Yamaha’s Josh Brookes wins at Assen in a dramatic second race after fighting off James Ellison and the chasing pack.
Rain began to fall at the start of race two, but soon stopped and the track began to visibly dry as all riders opted for slick tyres apart from Honda Racing’s Dan Linfoot.
Linfoot started off in the best position as he moved ahead of Brookes after the first corner due to begin on wet tyres, but this didn’t last long as the track continued to dry with no further rainfall.
Brookes moved thorugh on the fifth lap as the Championship leader took the advantage as fellow Title Fighter Tommy Bridewell crashed his Tyco BMW out of contention.
Brooks had Luke Mossey, Christian Iddon, Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne and Chris Walker trailing behind him. The British Superbike rookie took the lead a lap later ahead of Brookes after he had a ‘moment’ out of his seat.
James Ellison seized his opportunity for the lead on the next lap and the JG Speedfit Kawasakir rider pushed to the front of the pack just before Brooks made a decision move on both Cooper and Mossey to edge back into second place.
Brookes hunted down Ellison and on the 13th lap, the Milwaukee Yamaha rider made a lunge to retake the lead and to finish first.
Mossey put in some fast final laps meaning he was the top Showdown spoiler as he completed the podium for the Quattro Plant Kawasaki team. Cooper and Byrne finished fourth and fifth respectively.
Iddon claimed his best result of the season for the Bennetts Suzuki team in sixth place ahead of Jack Kennedy, Chris Walker, Michael Laverty and Jakub Smrz.
