Josh Brookes says he's had enough of the runner-up spot this season and is focusing on victories for Milwaukee Yamaha at Knockhill.

The Australian rider moved up to second the MCE British Superbike championship standings after his double rostrum at Snetterton as he grabbed a healthy helping of podium credits for the Showdown later in the year. Despite a positive weekend and having set a new outright lap record at the Norfolk circuit, Brookes is growing frustrated while race wins keep eluding him.

"I want to get out there and do the job, which ultimately is to screw the life out of it until we get the results that we know we are capable of and I have the desire as always to win," Brookes said.

Arguably, Brookes has been the most consistent competitor this season - having finished on the podium in seven out of eight races so far this season and is one of only two riders to finish every race in the points - but, surprisingly, is yet to claim a victory in 2015.

The Australian feels the new Yamaha R1 machine will give him a distinct edge on his rivals and hopes to find the right race setup to give him the chance to notch up that much desired first win of the year.

"I have had mixed results at Knockhill in the past, I have had wins there but last year we just couldn't perform like we would have wanted to and so this year we are definitely hoping for more," he explained. "I am hoping to recover the pace that we had when I claimed victories there and I think the new Milwaukee Yamaha will react differently to the previous model like we have seen at other tracks."
