Dane Robin Harms is set for the 2013 MCE BSB Championship

Former World Supersport front-runner Robbin Harms will join the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship full-time this season, as the Dane confirms his place on the grid with the Doodson Motorsport Honda team. 

Harms joined the Yorkshire-based team for the final five rounds of last year’s Championship season and instantly impressed with top ten finishes on his Superbike debut. The team, who return with the backing of Doodson for a sixth season, are now destined to have one of their strongest campaigns to date with the talented Dane, who has more than seven years of racing experience in the Grand Prix and World Supersport classes.

Harms said: “I joined the Championship towards the end of last year and it is a very strong field, but I felt positive straight away despite it being my first time on a Superbike. I am thrilled to race in the Championship as it is what I have wanted to do for many years. We want to be improving and fighting with the front riders; I like the tough competition as it means the racing is more exciting for me and it makes it a big achievement when you get good results. I definitely want to race in BSB for a couple of seasons and I want to be fighting for the victories as that is what racing is about.”

Team owner Tom Tunstall concluded: “Robbin did a fantastic job last season considering he had never ridden a Superbike before. He was great to work with and we were impressed by his drive and passion for racing. The plan for this season is to build and progress from where we left off at the end of last year. We have the same experienced crew he worked with last year which is important, and this combined with an upgraded bike should bring the right mix of consistency and development to give Robbin and Doodson Motorsport a successful season.”
