Having scored a podium in each British Superbike race so far this season, James Ellison is looking to go one better at Knockhill and secure his first victory of the year.

Ellison broke his run of five third place finishes last time out at Snetterton, finishing second behind Shane Byrne, a result that has lifted him to the same position in the overall standings.

It means Ellison is feeling confident heading north of the border to Scotland as he looks for his first win of the 2014 season, which in turn would mark a maiden BSB triumph for the GBmoto Kawasaki team.

"I'm feeling great going into Knockhill, we know as a team what we need to do to improve and are working on that every day," he said. "It will be important to get a front row start there as its quite a narrow track but I've won from worse positions, so it's not a deal breaker if we don't manage to pull it off in Qualifying.

"It is however a difficult place to pass at Knockhill due to the short straights, you only really have the final hairpin or a ballsy move into turn one so we need to be on our A game for sure. I'm hoping for a dry race but we all know that Knockhill has its own climate so we'll have to just deal with whatever card Mother Nature deals us. I'm excited to get back out on the Kawasaki!"
