Tim Neave Continues His Partnership with McAMS Yamaha, as the Former Superstock Rider Will Partner Jason O’Halloran in the Superbike Class.

Tim Neave will make the step up to the superbike class for his 2023 season campaign. Tim has been part of the McAMS Yamaha squad since the start of the 2022 season. During his time with McAMS the Lincolnshire rider has had three victories whilst competing in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship.

The 27-year-old has been in the BSB paddock since 2015, where first took part in the Superstock 600 championship. Once Tim settled into his racing in the Superstock series he was often a podium finisher.

To get the call up to ride for McAMS Yamaha is a dream come true. When I signed to ride for the team last year, in the back of my mind I was thinking if I could do a really good job on the Superstock bike and a seat became available, it would be the dream but I didn’t think it would actually happen!
“Raceways are one of, if not the best teams in the paddock – they’ve certainly won more races than anyone else in recent years so I can’t think of a better team to step up into BSB with. I loved riding the R1 Superstock bike, it really suited me as a rider and from what Jason has told me, the Superbike has similar characteristics so I’m looking forward to getting out on it for the first time. BSB is one of the toughest classes in racing, but I’ll give it my everything to make sure this opportunity isn’t wasted on me.

When Tim joined the team to race the Superstock bike in 2022 we were all really impressed by him. Not only was he super quick straightaway, but his attitude and the way he went about things meant that he fit in to the team immediately. There’s no doubt had the Knockhill accident, which wasn’t his fault, not occurred, he’d have continued to fight for the Superstock title.
“When he was fit, he was super-fast on the R1 and the Superstock bike has a lot of similarities to the Superbike, including the fact that we couldn’t run any traction control on the stocker, so the jump isn’t as big as it is with some other manufacturers. There’s still a lot to learn, but we are confident he’ll pick it up and look forward to seeing what he can achieve
