Just as it looked like he was going to end his weekend with a clean sweep of podium finishes, Jason O’Halloran crashed out of the final British Superbike Championship [BSB] race at Knockhill to slip further behind in the title standings.

Though there remains more than 20 races remaining on the calendar, the McAMS Yamaha rider is already facing down a 65-point deficit to the leaders following a rollercoaster start to his 2023 BSB campaign.

Third in qualifying, O’Halloran ran in the leading pack in each of the first two races, running inside the top three for much of the way and deservedly picked up a brace of thirds.

However, the final race of the weekend ended early as he caught the kerb through Clarks on just the second lap and crashed out.

“Overall, it’s been a strong weekend with two podiums and good pace,” he said. “We worked hard over the weekend and made steps in the areas we needed to.

"The last race we got to the front, and I knew I had to push but unfortunately bottomed out which lifted the front and I crashed.”

“It’s such a tough championship now with so many fast bikes and riders so you have to take some risks to get the rewards and that’s what I tried and sadly it didn’t pay off.

"Still, two podium finishes is really positive, and I can’t wait to get to Snetterton.”

With his race three crash signalling his third DNF this season, O'Halloran sits sixth in the overall standings.
