Oulton BSB: O’Halloran shakes off testing crash

McAMS Yamaha’s Jason O’Halloran has brushed off the crash he had at last week’s Oulton Park Bennetts British Superbike test and is ready to make put right what went wrong at the Silverstone opener.

The Australian weekend’s was turned from a potential 50-pointer to a double DNF after he was nerfed off by team-mate Tarran Mackenzie and then his R1 gave up early in race two.

The tip-off at Oulton meant O’Halloran had to cut short his test day but he suffered no lasting effects and is ready for this weekend’s clash at the Cheshire track.

“Our test was cut short with a small crash into Hizzys which was a bit disappointing. I just got on the grass and tipped over, so it wasn’t anything big but I just tweaked my right shoulder, so I left early to go and have physio but it is all good,” he said.

Silverstone was obviously a letdown for me in the end after so much promise; to lead pretty much all the first race and to end up with nothing wasn’t what I went there for, then we had the problem in race two, but I feel that we have a good pace and I’m chilled about it. We have just got to look at Oulton Park and crack on with the job.

“I think what happened at Silverstone does make me want to get going even more now with next weekend. I want a podium and I want to be winning; that’s not me being cocky but we have had good pace all pre-season and into the first round.

“We know that it won’t be easy, because it never is in BSB, but I love Oulton Park and had a podium there last year, so I am hoping it can be good for us. I feel ready to go and I am looking forward to next weekend.”
