Winning prompts a rethink for the Morrison brothers
Closing out 2022 with a win at the Euro Finals and then taking the FIM-E Super Street Bike trophy at the 2023 opener, Alan Morrison Jnr and Rick Stubbins have had a rethink about their plans for the rest of the season.
“It’s been a busy couple of weeks for both Rick Stubbins [bike builder and crewchief] and myself, Rick has taken the bike back to Protek HQ to pull the motor and check all is good and a general after race service work. We have been chatting over the last week about our 230mph pass and looking at our very useful data, so looking forward to trying a few small bits out.
Myself and big Bro Ross have taken the decision to follow the FIM-E rounds for the rest of the 2023 season, so we have been looking into everything that’s involved in travelling and racing in Europe, getting things booked and organised. Boss man Rick has obviously raced in Europe so he has been very helpful. So fingers crossed we will arrive Thursday morning in Tierp. Ross and myself are looking forward to our first full year in the FIM-E series, and we’re really looking forward to racing on different tracks.”
If there was any doubt beforehand, running the full tour and benefitting from Stubbins experience outside of Santa Pod (including multiple event wins in Germany), the Morrisons are going to be tough competitors for the Super Street Bike championship.
