Doodson Motorsport – Brands Hatch GP Final

The Doodson Motorsport team are set to return to the British Superbike grid in 2013 with Former World Supersport Championship podium contender Robbin Harms lining up on the team’s Honda Fireblade.

Having secured backing from specialist insurer Doodson Broking Group for a sixth successive season - the Yorkshire based TTR outfit turned around a challenging year in 2012 with Danish rider Harms joining the squad for the final five races and claiming top ten results during an impressive superbike debut.

The talented Dane who has more than seven years experience racing in GP and World Supersport classes has yet to sample the delights of some of the UK’s unique tracks and is keen build his superbike experience with a 2013 Honda CBR1000RR at his disposal.

Harms explained: 

“This 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”.

Team owner Tom Tunstall added:

“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. 

“The 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”.

The team's testing schedule gets underway in the coming weeks ahead of the opening round of the 2013 Championship held on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit over the weekend of the 5th-7th of April.
