Silverstone BSB test: O'Halloran positive in 'tricky' conditions

Tricky weather conditions made the final Bennetts British Superbike pre-season test at Silverstone a difficult affair for McAMS Yamaha’s Jason O’Halloran.

Rain, low temperatures and strong winds saw almost all of the six sessions interrupted as the riders looked to perfect their feeling with the bike ahead of next weekend’s opening round.

The Australian continued to work through a number of setup changes with new crew chief Les Pearson. Keen not to over-do it in the high wind, he worked through the motions and was happy with the end result. His quickest time of the test was a 54’223 which pla ed him 13th overall.


“Considering everything, I am pretty happy with the last couple of days. I don’t think we got a clear session apart from the first one so it’s been a tricky test with not a lot of track time, but we managed to get through quite a bit and I’ve learned a lot about the bike over the tests we’ve had,” said O’Halloran.

“Conditions were awful, especially today, with very strong winds so I took it a little bit easy. I think we’re in a strong position for next week and I’m looking forward to getting started.”
