Josh Brookes says he will be working on his tactics at Knockhill in order to get the edge on Shane Byrne after crashing at Snetterton whilst attempting to beat him.

The Australian has been the most consistent challenger to Byrne so far this season, but while he is the only rider other than the three-time champion to have won a race this season, his one victory compares with his rival's five.

Culminating in a crash at Snetterton in his efforts to beat Byrne, the Milwaukee Yamaha rider says he will approach his races differently at Knockhill in order to get a different result.

"I am fine after the Snetterton crash so it is business as usual. I think it's down to me and them how Shakey rides. I don't have expectations because if you look at the form from last year, everything has moved on so much. I was expecting us to be neck and neck though and that's how we have been. I am going to use my head a little bit more this weekend.

"At Snetterton I could have waited until the end of the race to try and make the move and it might have worked. But then I suppose if you look at Oulton Park I made it straight away and then won the race so it all depends on the situation. I have watched the last race back a couple of times and think perhaps I should have waited, but if the chance is there and I see it this weekend, I will go for it."
