Samsung Honda rider, Jason O’Halloran is to ride the Padgetts Racing CBR1000RR Fireblade at the final round of the British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch this coming weekend (12-14 Oct).

In recognition of the hard work put in by the 24-year old Australian over the last two season with the official Honda squad, and as a thank you for securing 2nd in the 2012 British Superstock 1000 Championship for the Samsung Honda team – O’Halloran has been given the opportunity ride for Padgetts Racing in the premier British Championship class, aboard the Superbike specification Fireblade.

Padgetts Racing are closely aligned with Honda, having run Honda machinery in British championship and selected road race events – such as the Isle of Man TT – for many years, with numerous successes along the way.

Jason O’Halloran: “This represents a great opportunity for me to show what I can do in the Superbike class, against some of the best Superbike riders in the world. It is going to be a big challenge because I have had no testing time on the bike but I am going to embrace it and push my hardest for a strong result. I would like to thank Samsung Honda and Padgetts Racing for giving me this opportunity.”
