TAS Racing along with title partner Tyco Security Products joined forces with BMW Motorrad for the 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship season, becoming the German manufacturer's official representatives after a long history with Suzuki.

The Northern Irish TAS Racing team is managed by Philip Neill and the squad initially started competitive racing on the roads in 2001. Since their inception they have amassed an impressive résumé including lap records and wins at all the major road race events including the Isle of Man TT.

TAS Racing stepped up to the MCE British Superbike Championship in 2008 after four successful seasons in the British Supersport Championship. The team moved to MCE BSB as the reigning British Supersport champions with Michael Laverty. In 2008 Laverty proved that the squad could mix it at the front with the already established teams in the paddock whilst Alastair Seeley secured the team the National Superstock 1000 and British Supersport titles in 2009 and 2011. 

This season Michael Laverty returns for a second consecutive season on the BMW and is joined by Christian Iddon who will lead the team's two-pronged attack in the MCE BSB. The team will return to the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship with TT legend Ian Hutchinson and reigning champion Josh Elliot.

After a very satisfying first season together with BMW Motorrad everyone at TAS Racing is looking forward to a second season with the BMW S1000RR. In turn, to have our long-term title partner Tyco Security Products remain with us for another year is very pleasing indeed. It was always our intention to continue with Michael for a second year: his experience and end of season form have left us feeling optimistic for 2016. I am extremely happy to welcome Christian to our team for 2016. I have always admired him as a rider to be honest. I truly believe that with our experience as a team, the quality of the BMW S1000RR package and Christian’s unique talent as a rider, we have all the ingredients to be successful. Finally, a big thanks goes to BMW Motorrad, Tyco Security Products and to each of our associate sponsors for your continued faith in TAS Racing. Philip Neil, Team Owner
