Cadwell Park presents a 'physical unknown' for Honda's O'Halloran

Honda's Jason O'Halloran is still on a recovery curve from the Imola WorldSBK crash, the leg injuries from which were exacerbated by a first-corner nerfing at the Snetterton Bennetts British Superbike round.

The Australian showed some steel with a hatful of points at Thruxton last time out but now faces another challenge this weekend at Cadwell Park and the infamous mountain where landing the jump will test O'Halloran's battered leg.

“Thruxton was overall good for us and showed the progress since the injury, but Cadwell Park is still a bit of an unknown given how physical it is, especially with the Mountain. I don’t really know what to expect as I haven’t tested there, but the aim previously has always been podiums or wins, or at least a top five and with the Showdown getting closer, we need to do everything to score the best we can," said O'Halloran.


“Thruxton I think proved that I haven’t lost the speed, it was just that the injury had been making it difficult and if you look at race one I was third into the Chicane and fighting with the lead group; I was just pushed wide which cost me the podium.

"That shows what a massive step forward it has been since Brands Hatch just two weeks’ ago, so I am happy with the injury progress although you always want it to be faster! The team have been working really hard so we are going to be fighting back as hard as we can at Cadwell Park.

“There are five races now before the Showdown, but I have to just focus on doing the best I can in those five races and not look at what is happening around me. What happens on raceday happens and we have seen that a few times this year.

" What is on my side is that I am getting stronger and I think that the momentum I lost through injury is now coming back; everyone else was gathering that a few rounds ago and they will probably stay in a similar place, where I think I can only get faster as I get back to full fitness. We showed we can be back at the front at Thruxton so hopefully we can build on that at Cadwell Park so I can have a strong home round.”
