Jason O'Halloran has signed to ride for the Linxcel Seton Tuning team for the remainder of the 2009 British Supersport Championship.

The former Australian Supersport Champion was recently dropped by the Althea Honda WSS squad, after just one round, having begun the 2009 season with SMT in BSB.

"I'm sure Jason will prove himself to be a valuable asset to the Linxcel Seton Tuning team," declared team manager Phil Seton. "His professional attitude, willingness to work as hard as the whole team and undoubted ability are the attributes we were looking for from our Supersport rider. We are sure Jason will be able to challenge at the front end of the grid where our Supersport bike deserves to be!"

"Thanks to Phil and the Linxcel Seton Tuning team for the opportunity," stated O'Halloran. "I'm look forward to working with the whole team. The last three meetings are at circuits I have already visited and I am look forward to running at the front of the Supersport championship for the rest of the year."

2008 BSS runner-up Hudson Kennaugh left the Linxcel Seton team in mid-August.

O'Halloran will make his debut with the team this weekend at Croft.
