Thruxton BSB |  O’Halloran out to recapture fighting form after vintage 2022 battle

Jason O’Halloran is quietly confident this weekend’s seventh round of the 2023 British Superbike Championship (BSB) at Thruxton will give him his best opportunity to return to the top of the podium following a run of lean form.

The Australian, one of the big title favourites pre-season on the McAMS Yamaha, has faded in the fight for this year’s championship race having struggled to build momentum round-to-round.

With the opening six events yielding a fairly scant single victory and four podiums, O’Halloran finds himself 99.5 points adrift of Tommy Bridewell at the summit of the overall standings, while three costly DNFs have pushed him even further onto the back foot.

It means a return to the UK fastest circuit couldn’t come at a better time for O’Halloran as he seeks to recapture the form that has seen him win five of the last six races to be held there.

Among that tally are two wins achieved at Thruxton in 2022, an event considered arguably one of the finest rounds in the history of the championship.

“Brands Hatch was a weekend where we scored some good points and took top five finishes, but ultimately myself and the team are looking for more. I think Thruxton can be that weekend for us. 

“I have won five of the last six races at Thruxton, so it has been a really good circuit for us as a team and one that I feel that the Yamaha should do really well at this year. 

“Last year was probably one of the best races of the season between myself, Brad and Taz, all three races were enjoyable to be a part of; I obviously won the first two and finished third in the last one. 

“I am feeling good and ready to get stuck in, hungry to get back on that top step. I want to win some more races this year and get that winning feeling back.”
