TAS Racing along with title partner Tyco Security Products joined forces with BMW Motorrad for the 2015 MCE 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 Christian Iddon returns for a second consecutive season on the BMW and is joined by rookie Andy Reid.

First of all I am proud to confirm that TAS Racing and Tyco Security Products will continue our partnership for a fifth consecutive season. On top of that, we are very pleased to finally announce our team line-up for the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship. “To retain Christian for a second season is an ideal scenario. He showed flashes of brilliance on numerous occasions this year and only some mid season problems affected his overall championship position. We believe in Christian's ability and fully expect him to be a championship contender next year, during his second term riding a Tyco BMW S1000RR. “I don't know Davide yet on a personal level but as world number 7 it's clear he is a very talented motorcycle rider and we would like to welcome him to Tyco BMW and to BSB for 2017. "We do have some work with new tracks to learn and of course we need to ensure Davide feels comfortable on the S1000RR as soon as possible. However, there is huge buzz of excitement throughout the team and from our sponsors, so we simply cannot wait to start this new chapter in TAS Racing history. Philip Neil, Team Owner
