Jason O’Halloran to race TAG Triumph
Former Australian Supersport Champion and Superbike runner-up Jason O’Halloran is spearheading the TAG Triumph British Supersport title bid in 2010.
Making it an all-Australian line-up in the south Derbyshire-based team, O’Halloran will be partnered by Triumph factory test rider and seasoned Daytona 675 racer will remain Paul Young.
O’Halloran said “I am totally stoked to have secured a ride with a professional team like TAG and to have factory support from Triumph.”
The signing of O’Halloran has also spurred on Young who added: “This year was a difficult year for me through injury and general misfortune, but this has only made me all the more determined and motivated for 2010 to be a challenger for the Supersport title.”
The team will also continue their commitment to developing young talent and will be fielding another pair of Triumph Daytona 675 machines in the Supersport Cup competition for Shaun Winfield and in the National Superstock 600 series for Ross Ashman.
Testing for all team riders is planned for early in the New Year, while preparations for the forthcoming season are already well underway with the team embarking on a programme of engine and electronics development.
