Jason O’Halloran picked up where he left off from Thruxton on a weather disrupted first full day of British Superbike Championship [BSB] action at Cadwell Park.

Fresh from his trio of victories last time out around the Hampshire circuit, O’Halloran arrives at Cadwell Park with renewed vigour in a title bid that had looked unlikely a couple of rounds ago.

However, much like he has been at other venues this year, O’Halloran was quickly up to speed on the McAMS Yamaha to set the pace in FP1, the only dry session of the day.


Indeed, with only a few riders testing out the damp conditions in a delayed FP2 session, each of Saturday’s fastest laps came the earlier session.

Behind O’Halloran, the LAMI OMG Yamahas of Kyle Ryde and Ryan Vickers contributed to a 1-2-3 for the firm’s R1s, +0.1s and +0.5s behind the top spot respectively.

They were followed up by Storm Stacey who, fresh from his career best result in BSB at Thruxton the Starline Kawasaki, kicked off his weekend positively again in fourth.

It was a mixed start to the weekend for the championship leading BeerMonster Ducati duo, with title chaser Glenn Irwin faring best in fifth place, unlike Tommy Bridewell down in 13th at the end of the day.

There was disappointment, however, for last year’s Cadwell Park double race winner Danny Buchan, who was hospitalised after a crash during FP1. Checked over as a precaution, the SYNETIQ TAS Racing BMW M 1000 RR rider has nonetheless been forced out of the event as a precaution.

After Peter Hickman went quickest in Friday’s pre-event test, Josh Brookes flew the flag for FHO BMW on Saturday in seventh, ahead of FS-3 Kawasaki’s Lee Jackson, Oxford Ducati’s Christian Iddon and MasterMac by Hawk Honda rider Charlie Nesbitt.
