THERE were mixed fortunes for the Doodson Motorsport duo at the latest round of the British Superbike championships, with further progress for Huddersfield racer Tom Tunstall while David Anthony was unable to race following a crash.
Anthony suffered a crash at the start of qualifying and the AMA regular broke bones in a foot, ruling him out for the remainder of the meeting.
Doodson Motorsport teammate and team owner Tunstall (right) 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 prospects.
“It was a big shame about David’s crash and we wish him a speedy recovery,” said Tunstall.
“But we’re continuing to make good progress.
“We now have a much needed mid season break, so we can catch our breath and get in some much needed testing to ensure we return stronger.”
Anthony added: “The BSB 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.”
