"I am just so wrapped to have this deal," said Brookes. "I hope to repay the Honda and the team by getting some good results. The Fireblade is my favourite bike and I just loved riding it in the Suzuka 8 Hour this year, hwere I came seventh. The team is building everything around me, exactly what i think I need for success, and I'm sure 2007 will be a great year."
