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 sixth consecutive year in 2022.
The announcement comes after the team stormed to dominant success in the 2021 championship, becoming British Superbike Champions with Tarran Mackenzie while a combined total of 21 victories and 42 podiums for Mackenzie and team-mate Jason O’Halloran from the 33 races saw the McAMS Yamaha team clinch the team’s trophy and manufacturers’ crown for Yamaha too.
The announcement comes after the team stormed to dominant success in 2021 with Tarran Mackenzie becoming British Superbike Champion. Plus, a combined total of 21 victories and 42 podiums from 33 races for Mackenzie and team-mate Jason O’Halloran saw the McAMS Yamaha team clinch the team’s trophy and manufacturers’ crown for Yamaha too.
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 31 British Superbike races and stood on the podium 83 times.
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 2022 McAMS Yamaha rider line-up will be announced in due course.
