More On Aussie Dave Anthony's Ride In The British Superbike Championship

Doodson Motorsport to Field Australian Anthony at Oulton

The Doodson Motorsport Team will field two riders at this weekend's British Superbike round at Oulton Park in Cheshire. "Aussie Dave" Anthony will be aboard the Doodson backed Honda machine alongside team owner Tom Tunstall.

The 30-year-old Australian, has continued to score solid top ten finishes in the 2012 AMA American Superbike Championship, and has experience of working with the team having stood in for Tunstall for the last three rounds of 2011.

The Californian resident is no stranger to the British Superbike paddock having ridden in Supersport and Superstock classes, not to mention a successful foray into the Superbike EVO championship, scoring a double win at Thruxton.

Tunstall explained the challenges in getting the package together in time for this weekend's triple header:

"The work that the whole Doodson team has put in since Knockhill to make this happen has been incredible. You can't buy a BSB spec Superbike "off the shelf", each team bespoke engineer their machines to a very high build spec and without the luxury of a winter break it's been a challenge!"

"Dave landed in the UK Wednesday morning and we plan to get him on the bike at Mallory on the way to Oulton. From there we'll look to continue the progress from Knockhill. We're looking forward to working with Dave again. It's a big ask for both him and the team especially with the three-race weekend, but we're relishing the challenge and as long as we continue to make good progress we'll be satisfied."

The first of the weekend's two races is staged on Saturday [7th] afternoon, with the familiar two race programme on the Sunday [8th].
