The fight is on for the McAMS Yamaha team as they head to the final rounds of the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch this weekend with both riders in contention for the crown.
Australia’s Jason O’Halloran sits just 19 points behind series leader Josh Brookes ahead of the weekend’s final three races, with team-mate Tarran Mackenzie 46 points off the top of the table meaning he too is mathematically in contention for the title.
The series will conclude with Rounds 16, 17 and 18 of the championship held over the 2.4-mile Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit – offering O’Halloran and Mackenzie three chances to do all they can to get their hands on the coveted BSB trophy.
It has already been a record-breaking season for the McAMS Yamaha team and 2020 YZF-R1 with four victories and 12 podium finishes marking the team’s best season to date in the championship.
Having featured on the podium at all but one event so far this season, the team are confident heading into a venue where the R1 has performed well in the past.
Practice gets underway for the event on Friday ahead of qualifying and the opening race on Saturday before the season concludes with two races on Sunday with qualifying onwards broadcast live on Eurosport.
