Josh Brookes says he's still pursuing a World Superbike ride for 2016 but admits his options remain uncertain.

The Milwaukee Yamaha rider is on the verge of securing a maiden MCE British Superbike title after another dominant double victory round at Silverstone this weekend. Brookes needs to score just three more points than his nearest rival Shane Byrne in the triple-header opening race at Brands Hatch to clinch the championship with two races to spare.

Speaking to Crash.net at Silverstone, Brookes says his intentions are to move to World Superbikes regardless of whether he claims a maiden BSB title this season.

"I'm still trying to pursue options to get into World Superbike although it isn't a clear option," Brookes said. "That is still a motivation. Whether I was to win the BSB championship or not, my ultimate goal and motivation is to progress."

The Australian has been offered the option to remain with Shaun Muir's team but may call time on his two-year stay if a suitable World Superbike option elsewhere opens up.

Conversely, Shaun Muir hasn't ruled out taking his team and Brookes to the world stage and is currently discussing the possibility of stepping up to World Superbikes with Aprilia or Suzuki after its original plan with Yamaha was thwarted last month.

Brookes says no firm decision has been made on his plans for 2016 but is certain his future will be to graduate from BSB.

"I'm just looking further, I don't want to restrict my career to BSB. I want to maintain the conversation and the idea that I want to try and progress," he said. "I haven't considered staying in BSB. I want to feel out the options to go elsewhere and if it is World Superbike that would be great."
