Progress for O'Halloran and McAMS Yamaha at Oulton Park

Progress for O'Halloran and McAMS Yamaha at Oulton Park

Jason O’Halloran set his quickest ever lap of Oulton Park as he rode to a pair of sixth places at Oulton Park on Monday, banking more valuable points for his 2022 challenge as he continues to make progress on the 2022 R1.

Starting tenth on the grid for the second race of the weekend after an eighth placed finish on Sunday, O’Halloran made a strong start and was battling towards the top six when a safety car came out. Sat in fifth position at one point, he would lose one spot before the end of the race and cross the line sixth.

Another row forward on the grid for race three, the team tried quite a radical change for the final encounter, one that would prove to be quite positive as O’Halloran was noticeably quicker from the off. Setting his fastest ever lap of Oulton Park while battling for fourth, he crossed the line sixth but with a much better feeling with the bike. He now sits sixth in the championship with 60 points.

Tim Neave enjoyed a strong outing on the Edwards 1902 Superstock R1, starting 12th on the grid he faced an uphill challenge but launched off the line to be within the top seven at the end of the opening lap. He made it through to sixth and was in the battle for the podium, but was unable to progress towards the end of the race bringing it home in a strong sixth place. He remains in the lead of the championship by 12 points.

The series resumes at Donington Park on the weekend of 20-22 May.

“I felt like we ended the weekend in a good way. It’s difficult when you go into a race with a setting you haven’t used before, so to do my fastest lap of Oulton Park in that situation shows that the bike was better and that I felt better straight away. I made some strong passes and felt like we were in the race. Although we still aren’t where we want to be, I feel like with the setting we have now we can turn up to the next race and tune for the weekend and build the speed and get back in the race. When you’re searching for a feeling all weekend like we have been here, every time you go out you try something big which is hard in a race weekend. The last race was very positive, although it’s a sixth place and nothing to shout about we are definitely heading in the right direction.”

“I am really happy with today’s result, starting 12th we had a big job on and I knew I needed to make a good start, which we did. The first lap I felt really good on the bike and was able to pass people quite easily, I got up to sixth and was feeling really strong. I tried to push towards the next group but I felt like I was pushing quite hard and with a big gap behind me I knew sixth was decent points so brought it home. We’re still leading the championship and head to Donington, a circuit I really enjoy and where the bike works very well.”

“It’s been another tricky weekend as we’ve tried to find Jason the feeling he needs on the bike, but overall we made a lot of strong steps and we are definitely heading in the right direction. We are playing the long game, we want the bike to be as strong as it can be at the end of the year as ultimately Jason learned in 2021 that you can win as much as you want at the start of the season, but it’s the Showdown when things count. Hopefully we can have two bikes out at Donington and that will speed up our development!”
