Brookes sets up GoFundMe page for Phillip Island Wildcard

MCE Insurance Josh Brookes has asked his fans and followers to help him financially so he can compete in the WorldSBK championship as a wildcard entry at Phillip Island in 2017.

The Australian will ride his 2015 MCE British Superbike at the opening round and having already spend $100,000 on the project, he needs a further $30,000 to ensure the bike is to a suitable standard.

On his GoFundMe page he says: 'The simple truth is, building a race team from scratch, sourcing all the parts, preparing the bike and with Australia being the furthest and most difficult place to import the bike to, freight has been a major factor that has overshot the budget.

'I know I have some amazing supporters out there, and with 65,000 people following me on twitter I'm hoping if just half of those could give $1 to this project we can cover the overflow of expenses.'

On his Twitter page the Australian admits: 'I've put off asking for help as long as possible, but it's come to the point where I have to ask.'
