WSS: O'Halloran gets Althea Honda call-up

Aussie youngster to ride alongside Mark Aitchison for Imola test

AUSTRALIAN rider Jason O'Halloran will join the Honda Althea World Supersport Team for the forthcoming Imola tests on 15 and 16 July, teaming up alongside his fellow Aussie rider, Mark Aitchison.

O'Halloran, 22-years old, has great experience in various forms of racing and most recently he has competed in the Australian and British Superbike Championships. He is not a rookie in WSS either, having ridden a one-off event at Brno in 2007, to replace the injured Kevin Curtain in the official Yamaha team (photo). He qualified 22nd but rode well in the race itself to finish 12th and score points in his first - and so far only - WSS race.

O'Halloran said: "I am really looking forward to the challenge ahead in the World Supersport championship; it's one of the toughest, closely fought championships in the world and I cannot wait to get amongst the action in Imola.

"I am looking forward to working with the Honda Althea team and will be trying 110%. Imola will be a new circuit for me but I am up for the challenge and hopefully by the end of the two days testing we will be in a competitive position."
