Bennetts BSB Qualifying: Pole redemption for O'Halloran

Saturday, October 01 2022

Jason O'Halloran bounced back with a determined performance in Bennetts British Superbike Championship SUPERPICKS Qualifying at Donington Park, claiming his fourth pole position of the season for the McAMS Yamaha team by just 0.009s.

O'Halloran set the benchmark lap and despite the best efforts of championship leader Bradley Ray, the Rich Energy OMG Racing Yamaha rider could not topple him from the top ahead of the eBay Sprint Race this afternoon.

Former World Champion Tom Sykes used his Donington Park experience to claim his first front start of the season for the MCE Ducati team to complete the front row.

FHO Racing BMW's Peter Hickman will head the second row, pipping Kyle Ryde on the second Rich Energy OMG Racing Yamaha and Andrew Irwin on the leading SYNETIQ BMW.

Glenn Irwin will lead row three after topping the free practice sessions for Honda Racing UK, just ahead of Ryan Vickers and Title Fighter Lee Jackson on the lone Cheshire Mouldings FS-3 Kawasaki.

Josh Brookes completed the top ten on the second of the MCE Ducatis, with Tommy Bridewell in eleventh place on the Oxford Products Racing Ducati.
