Josh Brookes

Josh Brookes (born Joshua Brookes, 28 April 1983 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) is a professional motorcycle road racer. He has experience of Superbike and Supersport racing, both domestically and internationally. In 2016 he will race a BMW S1000RR in the Superbike World Championship.

During 2015 he raced a Milwaukee Yamaha YZF-R1, winning the British Superbike Championship at the final round of the season at Brands Hatch. In the last race of the event, Brookes hit the inside kerb of a bend and slid off, but had already amassed sufficient points to win the Championship in the first of three races at the venue, so he re-joined the track for a lap after the race to wave to spectators.

Karel Abraham

Karel Abraham (born 2 January 1990) is a Czech motorcycle racer. In 2016, Abraham will race a BMW S1000RR in the Superbike World Championship for Milwaukee BMW.

Prior to this, Abraham competed in Grand Prix motorcycle racing from 2005 to 2015, riding in the 125cc, 250cc, Moto2 and MotoGP classes. Despite criticism of Abraham "buying" his way into MotoGP having never been a front runner in the support classes, Abraham took his first podium at Twin Ring Motegi and then won his first Grand Prix at the 2010 season-ending Valencian Grand Prix.
