McAMS, the UK’s leading motorcycle accident management service, has agreed a deal to continue as the title sponsor of Yamaha’s official team in the Bennetts British Superbike championship for a fifth consecutive year in 2021.
The announcement comes after the team narrowly missed out on winning the 2020 British Superbike crown with Jason O’Halloran taking the runner-up spot at Brands Hatch this weekend.
Having taken five victories and 12 further podiums, it marks McAMS Yamaha’s best year in the championship so far and a career-best result for both O’Halloran and team-mate Mackenzie.
McAMS first joined forces with Raceways Motorcycles when the then British Supersport squad stepped up to the Superbike class to be Yamaha’s official team in 2017. Since then, McAMS Yamaha has won ten BSB races and stood on the podium 41 times. The relationship also saw Tarran Mackenzie win six consecutive British Supersport races in 2017 before moving on to Moto2 mid-season.
Forming part of Anexo Group PLC,Direct Accident Management, McAMS and the wider group have been helping people who have been involved in non-fault motorcycle, car and cycling accidents since the company was founded in 1996. Their relationship with Yamaha goes far beyond racing too, with much of their hire fleet featuring Yamaha motorcycles and scooters.
The deal makes McAMS one of the longest standing sponsors in the British Superbike paddock, having first joined the series as a supporting sponsor in 2014.
The 2021 McAMS Yamaha rider line-up will be announced in due course.
