Second row start for Jason O’Halloran at Oulton Park
Honda Racing’s Jason O’Halloran lines up on the second row of the grid for tomorrow’s opening Bennetts British Superbike Championship race at Oulton Park, after setting the fifth fastest time aboard the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade.
With glorious conditions and blistering pace throughout qualifying, ‘The O’Show’ set the initial benchmark in the opening stage. With consistent lap times, the Aussie made it through each qualifying session and is looking confident with the Fireblade package at the Cheshire circuit. Setting the fifth fastest lap time (1:34.404), O’Halloran was just 0.425 seconds from pole.
Meanwhile teammate for this round, Ryuichi Kiyonari has been building and improving his lap times across each session this weekend. Having just made the cut into Q2 on his final lap in qualifying, Kiyo tipped off at Hizzys after losing the front of the CBR. The Japanese ace was left unhurt and will start tomorrow’s 18-lap race from 18th position.
Tomorrow’s racing action is scheduled for race one to get underway at 1330 and race two a 1630.
