The McAMS Yamaha team are pleased to reveal the 2020 Yamaha YZF-R1 Tarran Mackenzie and Jason O’Halloran will race in the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship.
After months of uncertainty throughout the coronavirus pandemic, series organisers MSVR have today announced a revised 2020 calendar, which is set to get underway in August at Donington Park.
The series will be contested over six rounds, each featuring three BSB races meaning the 2020 title will be decided over an 18 race season.
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.
Since lockdown restrictions were eased, the team has been busy continuing to prepare the bikes for the start of the season with everything on track to be ready for a July test.
