Podium Celebrations for O'Halloran and McAMS Yamaha at Cadwell Park

Podium Celebrations for O'Halloran and McAMS Yamaha at Cadwell Park

There was more podium joy for Jason O’Halloran and the McAMS Yamaha team as the Australian took a third-place finish in the second race at Cadwell Park.

After taking a fourth place in Saturday’s Sprint Race, O’Halloran knew it would be tricky from the second row of the grid with Cadwell a notoriously challenging venue for passing, especially given the speed deficit to some competitors this year. Biding his time, O’Halloran was sat comfortably in the top five before attacking at the end with two moves at the Hairpin to take a strong third place.

Again starting from the second row in Race 3, the O’Show got a strong start but was knocked back a little on the opening laps. Re-grouping, the Australian was the quickest rider on the track towards the end of the race but it wasn’t quite enough. Moving up to fifth, he set his sights on improving that position to take a fourth. However, a mistake from the rider ahead meant O’Halloran had to sit up to avoid hitting his rival, meaning he’d lose a place on the final lap and cross the line sixth.

A solid points haul means O’Halloran maintains the gap to the championship lead at just 54.5 points with three rounds remaining with the points ramping up next time out at Oulton Park (15-17 September) with 25 points available for a win over the next two rounds before things ramp up even further at Brands Hatch for the finale in October.

“It’s been a good weekend, we’ve had decent pace all weekend and I felt good on the bike. It was nice to get a podium in race one and then I finished sixth at the end. It’s always difficult when you start on row two here as it’s so, so hard to pass around here. You work so hard to try and get through and then you have to try and close the gap at the end and that burns the tyre up and also burns your energy up. I’m looking Oulton, I think we’re in a pretty good place with the bike – we rode a similar bike to what we had at Thruxton and it’s worked pretty well so we’re in a good place, so we’ll give it our all.”

“This is in so many ways one of the most difficult BSB rounds on the calendar given it’s technical nature, how physical it is and how narrow it is, so to walk away with three top sixes including a podium is a strong weekend. Unfortunately you can’t give anything away around here and even starting on the second row, when you’ve the speed disadvantage we have to some of our competitors, it’s just so hard to pass, especially as you’re on the limit all the time. Jason rode well, he had strong pace but unfortunately we were on the back foot after qualifying and never quite recovered to fight at the front. We’ll try again at Oulton Park!”
