year is a whole new chapter for my racing career. BSB is where I want
to race most of all so I intend to get the best out of it. I enjoyed
very much to work with Tom Tunstall and the Doodson Motorsport team
last season and are sure of that they capable of building a competitive
bike for this season. At the same time I am happy and thankful for that
they give me a full shot this season”.

“Considering he’d never ridden a Superbike before Robbin did a fantastic job last season. He was great to work with and we were impressed by his drive and passion for racing.
plan is to build and progress from where we left off. He has more new
tracks to learn but importantly we have the same experienced crew he
worked with last year combined with an upgraded bike should bring the
right mix of consistency and development to give Robbin and the Doodson
Motorsport team a successful and enjoyable season”.
