Northern Ireland-based TAS Racing is pleased to announce that both antipodean road racing stars, Cameron Donald and Bruce Anstey, will be retained for the 2010 international road racing season.
Managed by father and son pairing, Hector and Philip Neill, Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing is already in the planning process for 2010 with their Superbike machinery nearing completion. The team’s official race schedule will be announced in the coming weeks, but an early season series of tests have already been pencilled in for February 2010.
Both Donald and Anstey will major their 2010 season’s on the international road races, but will also compete in a number of hand-picked British Superstock rounds and local events, to improve their chances of adding to the team’s long list of international road racing achievements.
Philip Neill – Team Principal:
“As per normal, there were lots of rumours suggesting we would change riders for 2010, or that Bruce and Cameron would change teams. I am prepared to admit, that although we had podium finishes in all three international road races and a North West 200 race win with Alastair in 2009, it was a little short of what is expected from TAS Racing.
“As the most successful international road racing team in recent years, with 15 Isle of Man TT, 12 North West 200 and 11 Ulster Grand Prix victories, we set a very high standard for ourselves.
“Although we did consider other options for 2010, along with our partners Suzuki and Relentless, my Father and I always had the desire to remain with the same riders for the international races next season.
“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome both riders back for our next assault on the international road racing scene. It will be Bruce’s eighth with TAS Racing and Cameron’s third; and in closing I’d also like to thank our long-standing partners for their continued support.”
