Brookes sets up GoFundMe page for Phillip Island Wildcard
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.'
