Tyco’s roads team remains unchanged for 2015 with William Dunlop and Guy Martin holding station to contest the three big internationals and selected other races.
It will be the first time that either have raced with BMW machinery and kind of ironic that Michael Dunlop has been ditched by the manufacturer for 2015.
“Moving to BMW is an exciting change and one I’m looking forward to. We all saw what the BMW S1000RR was capable of achieving this season, so with the expertise of the guys at TAS Racing, I’m pretty sure we can do well on the Tyco BMWs in 2015. I got my first international superbike win last year and I’d really like more, as it’s the class to do it in. We have a top team and I’m happy to be working with Guy again at the TT, where I think together we can be even stronger with this new package,” said Dunlop.
Martin added: “Moving to BMW machinery is the reason I’m still racing next year and not retiring. I’ll always give it my all and to be with a quality manufacturer like BMW is mega.
“I’m looking forward to getting on the bikes as soon as possible. It’s a new bike and I’ve never ridden it before but we all know its pedigree. TAS is the best team I’ve ever ridden for; they get me and I get them and we meet in the middle, which is why we’ve been successful and this new venture with BMW is just what we need going into next season.”
