Police are appealing for witnesses following the theft of four Tyco BMW race bikes from a Birmingham hotel close to the NEC last night.
Four bikes were stolen from one of our race transporters between the hours of 10.30pm on Sunday November 27th, 2017 and 6.30am, November 28th, 2017. The location of the theft was the Premier Inn, Birmingham NEC/Airport, Northway, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, B40 1QA.
The team have already been informed the bikes were taken away in a white Ford Transit van, so if anyone was in the area and saw anything suspicious between those hours, please contact us directly at TAS Racing (028 8674 8097) or ring West Midlands Police on contact number 101 and ask for PC Shaw .
Even the smallest bit of information could help return what is a huge investment by TAS Racing, so please do ring either number if you can add anything to our search for the missing Tyco BMW machinery.
Team Manager Philip Neill, said: “We put our heart and soul into motorcycle racing and these bikes have real sentimental value. For this to happen is just devastating, especially as the bikes were only at Motorcycle Live so that race fans could see them up close and personal.”
