Doodson Motorsport - Silverstone Arena GP

Doodson Motorsport recruit David Anthony continued to make good progress at the penultimate round of the British Superbike Championships netting a 5th place finish in race two.

Following his first outing for the team at Donington Park, Aussie Anthony flew back to the US for racing duties at Willow Springs and landed back in the UK two days prior to the penultimate round, staged on the Silverstone Arena GP circuit.

Anthony used the free practice sessions to continue to adapt to the Doodson Motorsport BMW S1000RR, but was struggling with corner entry issues which hampered his efforts in the qualifying phase posting the 9th fastest Evo time.

Adjustments to the chassis set-up of the bike overnight, saw Anthony able to lap at a pace half a second faster than in qualifying and with more confidence on the bike.
Race one yielded a sixth place finish after a 14 lap battle with last year’s Evo champion Steve Brogan.

The second outing of the day saw another race long battle with Brogan, and although Anthony’s mid distance pace was similar to that of the third and fourth placed Evo riders, the battle restricted him to a solid fifth place as the race ended two laps early due to oil on the track.

Following the advances in machine set-up for the Aussie and with more experience under his belt the team are looking forward to making the trip to Brands Hatch in just under two weeks time for the final round of the 2011 British Superbike Championship, with eyes firmly set on the Evo Podium.
