The Doodson Motorsport British Superbike Team has bounced back following Tom Tunstall’s injuries, and has secured the services of the 2008 Australian Superbike Champion, Glenn Allerton.
rider and team principle Tom Tunstall sustained breaks to his pelvis
and sacrum after hitting oil in the first race at the Snetterton just
over a month ago.
Although his recovery is progressing well it was clear from an early stage that a replacement rider would be needed, as Tunstall explained:
soon as the injuries were diagnosed I quickly realised we’d need to
arrange another rider. I started making calls from my hospital bed and
was very close to sorting it in time for Oulton. For contractual
reasons that didn’t happen but we continued to work hard.”
is highly thought of by BMW, and his success on the S1000RR in this
year’s Australian Superbike Championship speaks for itself.
certainly in at the deep end for him, he hasn’t used Pirellis or seen
any of the UK tracks before, and his first full day of the bike will
include qualifying and a race! Glen is very motivated and enthusiastic
about coming to BSB with the Doodson Motorsport team. We are looking
forward to working with him and confident he will quickly adapt”.
30year old from Sydney is running away with this year’s Australian
Superbike Championship. Having finished on the podium in every race,
and winning 50% of them, Glenn has established a 56 point lead with
three rounds remaining.
like to thank all our supporters, everyone at Doodson Broking Group,
and all our sponsors who have been fantastic, the messages and cards
from the BSB fans has been amazing”
The team are looking to complete a brief shakedown test at Mallory Park en route to Brands Hatch for this weekend triple header.
