“It feels awesome to win the title and a lot of my talking was done out on the track today. When I’m under pressure, I seem to be able to find that little bit more and get the results when I need to, which is exactly what I’ve done today,” said Brookes after his win.
“It’s been a hard fought year and I was pushed hard all weekend but the bike worked really well, especially on Sunday and it felt natural to go out there and win so a big thank you to everyone at the PBM team.”
