O'Halloran back in the title hunt
LOUTH-based rider Jason O'Halloran recorded a hard-fought fifth-place at Donington Park to claw one point back on Superstock 1000 Championship leader Keith Farmer.
The Samsung Honda man is now only nine points off Farmer after last weekend's action as attention now switches to Silverstone for the penultimate round of Superstock class competition at the end of the month.
O'Halloran said: "It was a tough race with a lot of passing going on and with aggressive moves I sometimes lose out a bit in those circumstances.
"But I got one point back on Keith so it's not all bad and we will take it to Silverstone and see what we can do there to try and close the gap again."

As reported, the team scored a double podium finish at Donington, as Michael Laverty claimed a third and second place at the ninth round of the British Superbike Championship.
Jon Kirkham showed strong once again and took another pair of top ten finishes with a seventh and ninth place.
Team manager, Havier Beltran, left, said: "It was an interesting weekend for us at Donington.
"In the Superstock, class Jason pulled back a point in the standings which could prove crucial over the final two rounds.
"We have the pace and ability to be back on the podium at Silverstone so we will be ready for that.
"In the Superbike class, of course it was also great for Michael to have had two podium finishes.
"He came back stronger in the second race with some improvements, but we still have some work to do for Assen."
