McAMS Yamaha’s Jason O’Halloran finally kickstarted his 2022 Bennetts British Superbike Championship challenge with two wins at Donington Park, launching himself up to second in the overall standings and feeling confident for this weekend’s fourth round at Knockhill.

O’Halloran had historically had a tough time at the Fife circuit in the past, but turned it around last year with his first podium finish in Scotland. T

he Australian is bidding to carry his momentum from the previous races into this weekend, knowing that the Fleetwood-based team also has the knowledge from its recent test at the circuit to use to their advantage.

“It’s been a good few weeks now since Donington Park and we had such a good weekend there taking a double win. We found a great feeling on the bike and I felt so strong in all the races,” said the Wollongong rider.

“It’s been nice to have a few weeks off, last year we were straight into the next weekend so it never really felt like you could enjoy the victories, you always had to turn your attention straight to the next round and track. This year it’s nice to soak it all in and enjoy the result.

“We have had a test at Knockhill which again went well for us. I really enjoyed riding the bike there and we put in plenty of work. I can’t wait to see what we can do this weekend, it’s always a challenge but I’m up for it and can’t wait to get started.”
