Press Release 8 August 2016

Death of Mr Robent DORON.

Press release following the death of Mr Robert DORON.

We are sad to announce that Robert DORON was victim of a fall on Sunday morning during the sixth round of the Coupes de France Promosport. Aged 66, he succumbed to his injuries and sadly died at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours.

At the head of the Paris Nord Moto dealership, in Aulnay-sous-Bois, the successful businessman who was passionate about motorcycling had been a rider for more than 40 years. Starting from a simple garage in the 1970s, Bob, as everyone in the paddock called him, was the owner of a very large multi-brand concession in the Paris region that he had created with his own hands.

As a competitor, a visionary and a man of initiative, Robert DORON was above all; a man who was totally devoted to bikes.

It is with infinite sadness and great emotion that the Moto Club de Nevers, the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, and its President Serge SAULNIER offer their sincere condolences to the family and relatives of Robert DORON.
