British Superbike Championship (BSB) contender Jason O’Halloran will remain with McAMS Yamaha for 2023, marking the Australian’s fifth season representing the outfit.

O’Halloran has won 21 races with the squad in the last four seasons, more than any other rider-team combination across that period. However, a challenging end to the 2022 season leaves the number 22 with unfinished business.

“Deciding to continue with McAMS Yamaha for 2023 was a pretty easy choice for me,” O’Halloran explained. “Over the last three years we’ve won 21 races together, it’s a team I feel absolutely at home with and we know we can be in a position to fight for the title as we have for the last three years.

“2022 didn’t quite end how we wanted, but that’s not to say that we didn’t have a positive year – seven wins, a load more podiums and we learned even more about the R1 so that can put us in an even stronger position for 2023. The team won’t rest on their laurels, there are new parts coming from World Superbike and we’ll continue to push on as we look to achieve our ultimate goal of becoming champion.”

McAMS Yamaha team principal Steve Rogers added: “Jason has been brilliant for the team over the last four years so keeping him on board for 2023 was our number one priority.

“While we were all devastated about how the 2022 season ended, after a few weeks to reflect it’s hard to say that it was a bad year – seven victories and 20 podiums is more than anyone else other than Brad.

“We know what Jason is capable of, we know he deserves to win the British Championship and we’ll do our best to give him everything he needs to do that in 2023. We’ve got some new parts coming from the guys in Italy which sound really promising, so we can’t wait to get started!”
