DAVE Brook (Team Arkoni Racing) has bounced back after his Mallory Park crash in the Thundersport GB Series.

The Bradford motor cyclist notched three third places in the latest round at Rockingham, cementing his second place overall.

Brook, of Clayton Heights, said: "I'm very pleased with the results. We chucked in a test between the rounds and I completed one full session out of five as I was plagued with teething problems from the crash at Mallory Park.

"This meant I didn't have any practice to blow the cobwebs off, so I had an enormous amount of pressure to get on the pace, rectify the electronic problems and set the bike up all on the official test day – but I qualified in fifth, 0.5 seconds off pole.

"I managed to build and improve throughout the weekend and got three solid thirds out of all the races, so I have to be happy with that.

"My fitness wasn't 100 per cent so, given more recovery and training, I'm sure I'll be fighting fit for Anglesey at the end of August."
