McAMS Yamaha will slim down to just a single entry for this weekend’s eighth round of the 2023 British Superbike Championship [BSB] at Cadwell Park after opting against extending the stay of Tito Rabat.

Former MotoGP rider Rabat made a surprise return to BSB at Snetterton in July after being drafted in to replace Tim Neave in the factory Yamaha UK backed team for a three-round stint that would also take in Brands Hatch and Thruxton.

Coming twelve months after Rabat made a brief appearance with the TAG Honda team in 2022, Rabat made a strong impression aboard the R1 at Snetterton, qualifying inside the top five and securing a pair of top ten race finishes.

However, after enduring a more difficult time next time out at Brands Hatch and then Thruxton, the decision was made not to extend the relationship into the latter third of the 2023 season

“We’ll be purely focusing on Jason [O’Halloran] this weekend as we look to close down that gap to the front,” said McAMS Yamaha boss Steve Rodgers. 

“Tito showed a lot of promise at Snetterton, but BSB poses a very unique challenge and Brands Hatch and Thruxton were tough weekends for him at tracks where the bike worked well so we’ve mutually agreed not to extend our three-round agreement.”

O’Halloran arrives at Cadwell Park on the single McAMS Yamaha with momentum on his side after three wins last time out at Thruxton saw him bounce back to third in the overall standings, 49.5 points shy of leader Tommy Bridewell.
