Brookes will race for PBM Ducati at NW200
Former British Superbike champion Josh Brookes won't be coming to race at the TT this year even though he will compete at next month's North West 200.
The Australian motorcycle racer's replacing Michael Dunlop in the PBM Ducati team for the event in Northern Ireland but won't be racing in the Isle of Man a fortnight later.
He has raced at the TT before, the last time being in 2018.
Meanwhile, Dunlop is still without factory-machinery similar to rivals Dean Harrison and Peter Hickman for the Superbike and Senior TT races after announcing his split from PBM at the weekend.
