Jason O’Halloran continued to stamp his mark on the 2021 British Superbike Championship with a dominant treble victory at Brands Hatch, one that surges him clear in the overall standings.

One of the most experienced riders in BSB having made his debut back in 2009, the Australian is enjoying a renaissance in 2021 with the McAMS Yamaha squad having now won seven of the 12 races so far.

Coupled with a difficult weekend for main rival Christian Iddon - who began the weekend with a six point advantage at the head of the standings - O’Halloran leaves the Hampshire circuit with a 42 point advantage.

While this advantage stands to be neutered by the Title Showdown format - which has been stretched to include eight riders in 2021 - O’Halloran stands head and shoulders above his rivals on podium credits having attained 39 points to Iddon’s 23.

“It's been a very good weekend. Another triple, seven wins so far this year, four in the last six races - it's been an amazing couple of weeks for us. A huge thanks to McAMS Yamaha, it's been another weekend of changeable conditions and we all made really good decisions together. 

"When you are working together as a team and bouncing off each other and you get results like that it just keeps you going. To win in the dry this weekend was fantastic, but to win in those conditions in the final race was unbelievable. 

"I'm probably happier with the third race win than any win so far - it was such a tough race, it was a gamble on the grid to go with an inter and to push at the end when it was raining was really tricky but we made it happen, got another win and I look forward to Donington in a couple of weeks." 

The result is O’Halloran’s second ‘treble’ of the year after starting the season with three wins at the Oulton Park opener.
