Former Australian Supersport Champion Jason O’Halloran continues to gain momentum in this year’s British Supersport Championship after finishing a fine fourth at Cadwell Park last weekend.
The East Coast Racing Yamaha rider has been a steady improver throughout the season, establishing himself as a contender for podiums in the final rounds of the 2010 season after battling hard for second throughout the Cadwell race.
“It was a great race I’m gutted to have not been able to put it on the podium as this is my main sponsors’ Arkpro, Lucas Machinery and AKP’s local round and I would have liked to have stuck it on the podium for them all since we were so close,” O’Halloran said.
“At least now we are running with the front runners and the chance of a top three result is getting nearer and nearer, I have three rounds left to try and get it sorted. The Yamaha worked mega once again and Spider and GP James pulled out all the stops to make sure that everything ran smoothly and it did.
“The race was so close and really good fun having the battle out there with the boys and I really want to get in that top three at one of the last rounds to say thanks to everyone that’s worked so hard.”
Team manager Phil Reed was proud of O’Halloran’s efforts, also looking forward to his maiden podium of the season.
“Jason’s result was once again fantastic and we’re really pleased for him,” Reed said. “He’s been running a good pace all weekend and proved in the race he could fight it out at the front. We know the podium is there we just have to find it, they have worked exceptionally hard all weekend and it’s another great result for the team.”
The series will now move on to Croft for round 10 on 10-12 September.
