Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes says he will come out with all guns blazing this weekend at Assen as the MCE British Superbike Championship Showdown engages gear.

The Australian rider was disappointed to finish off the rostrum in both races at Donington Park in the previous round and Brookes is ready to make amends.

"I am confident we can come out fighting at Assen. I am riding the best I can and the team are working hard to put us in the best position," he said.

"I am approaching these final rounds with a level head and treating it like any other race; I want to do the best I can and that is all I can do and then whatever will happen will be the end result.

"We go to Assen knowing that we need to beat them all."

Brookes, who is 17 points down on championship leader Shane 'Shakey' Byrne, claimed a win at Assen in 2012.

The Suzuki rider is taking nothing for granted as the series reaches the high point of the season and is adopting a calm approach as he focuses on closing the gap at the top.

"In previous years in the Showdown I have felt nervous before the first round and thought about scenarios and what could happen, but this year I don't feel like that because it is just wasted energy," Brookes said.

"The way I am approaching these final rounds is with a level head and treating it like any other race; I want to do the best I can and that is all I can do and then whatever will happen will be the end result.

"We are all trying hard at the front and you can see that from the pace, but we go to Assen, Silverstone and Brands Hatch knowing that we need to beat them all."
