McAMS Yamaha have this morning unveiled the livery they will run in for the recently-announced 2020 Bennetts British Superbikes series.
Campaigning the updated 2020 YZF-R1 this season, McAMS Yamaha enjoyed a positive pre-season testing programme in Spain back in March and remain raring to go ahead of the season’s start.
The 2020 R1 has already seen success in other series with Toprak Razgatlioglu taking victory in both his and the bike’s first outing with the Pata Yamaha World Superbike team in Australia back in February, while Cameron Beaubier took an emphatic double at the opening round of the MotoAmerica championship just a couple of weeks ago.
After three months without riding, both Mackenzie and O’Halloran will be taking part on track days on stock machinery ahead of their first time back on their Superbike at the official BSB test.
“After what has been a difficult few months for everyone, it’s definitely nice to have some positive news in the shape of a proposed race calendar,” said team boss Steve Rodgers.
“Stuart and the team at MSV are doing a great job as they look to get us back on track in the safest and most responsible way and we fully support what they are doing.
“Thanks has to go to all of our partners, especially McAMS, as their support through the last few months has been vital to keeping things on track.
“We enjoyed three positive tests earlier this year and were itching to get started in April so the delay has only got us more fired up. A shortened series will be very different and as a team we’ll have to tackle it in a different way, but that is a challenge that we look forward to as it should mean the fans, who have been waiting so patiently, get the close, exciting show they deserve.”
