Mixed fortunes
for Doodson Motorsport
Mixed fortunes for the Doodson Motorsport duo at the latest round of the British Superbike championships with further progress for Tom Tunstall but David Anthony was unable to race following a crash in qualifying.

A return to Brands Hatch marked the start of the second half of this year’s British Superbike season, this time utilising the popular 2.43mile GP circuit.

“Aussie Dave” Anthony jetted back into the UK just prior to the event and had a positive first test session back on the Honda. However a technical issue at the start of qualifying saw the AMA regular fall and break bones in his foot ruling him out for the remainder of the weekend.

“The BSB medical team did a great job and the x-rays show some broken bones in my foot which may need pinning. I’ll take them back and show my surgeon in California and we’ll take it from there. It’s a shame as the new engine and clutch spec we we’re trying felt like a good step forward.”

Doodson Motorsport team mate and team owner Tom Tunstall continued to chip away and make progress with the bike and after a technical issue in race one ended race two in 22nd and positive about the direction forward.

"It was a big shame about David's crash and we wish him a speedy recovery. We're continuing to make good progress with the bikes and have identified the biggest area for improvement which is compromising how we can set the bike up.”

“We now have a much needed mid season break we can catch our breath and get in some much needed testing to ensure we return at the next round stronger."

Round eight of the 2012 championship takes place over the August bank holiday weekend [25th-27th] at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire.
