Jason O’Halloran is optimistic he can delve deeper into the British Superbike Championship [BSB] title fight at Cadwell Park this Bank Holiday weekend following a transformative hat-trick of wins last time out at Thruxton.

Considered among the title favourites pre-season, O’Halloran had in the midst of a fairly low-key campaign in the run up to Thruxton with just a single victory to his name from the opening six rounds.

Together with three costly DNFs hampering his progress, the Australian found himself on the wrong end of a 99.5 point deficit to Tommy Bridewell at the head of the standings.

Nevertheless, O’Halloran continued to dig deep and duly got his reward around his specialist circuit, reeling off a trio of victories - bringing his tally around the Hampshire venue to eight wins from the last nine races to be held there - to come away with a maximum haul of points.

It means O’Halloran has surged to third in the overall standings and slashed the margin down to Bridewell up top to 50.5 points with four rounds remaining. 

Eager to maintain that winning momentum at his local event this weekend, while the more technical, undulating layout represents an entirely different challenge, O’Halloran arrives with a renewed belief that he is still in contention for this year’s crown.

“It was an incredible weekend at Thruxton for us from start to finish, pole position and three race wins was about as good as it gets! Now we look forward to Cadwell Park and try to take this momentum forward. 

“It is a track that I love, a home track for me in the UK; I love everything about it. But it is difficult – it is a tough track and it is always a tough race there. A lot of riders go fast there so I expect another competitive weekend. 

“I haven’t ridden there since the race last year, so I am looking forward to getting up to speed and get the feeling with the track to get into a rhythm ready for the races.”
