Christian Iddon will remain with the Tyco BMW team for 2017’s MCE British Superbike series after signing a new one-year deal with the squad.
The Stockport rider took six BSB podiums in his debut season with Tyco BMW, has been retained for a second season. Having started 2016 with four podiums on the bounce, Iddon re-discovered that impeccable form in the latter part of the season, which also saw him, set a new absolute track lap record at the end of season Sunflower Trophy Races in Northern Ireland.
“It goes without saying, I’m very pleased to have been able to secure a second season with Tyco BMW on the S1000RR. We learned a lot in 2016 and what we did show at both ends of the year was that we are more than capable of challenging at the front, and that’s exactly the plan in 2017, but more consistently,” said Iddon, who was on hand with the team at Motorcycle Live.
“I’d also like to welcome Davide to the team. He’s a talented rider who will bring a lot to our set-up and together, I’m confident we can put the Tyco BMW to the fore at all twelve rounds of the championship in 2017.”
