TAS Racing along with title partner Tyco Security Products joined forces with BMW Motorrad for the 2015 Bennetts 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 Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2008 after four successful seasons in the British Supersport Championship. The team moved to Bennetts 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 fourth consecutive season on the BMW after narrowly missing out on a Showdown spot and is joined by reigning Superstock 1000 champion Keith Farmer who steps up to the Superbike class after winning the title with the team last year.

Firstly, I am extremely pleased to confirm Tyco as our title partner for 2019. We continue our association with them in the British championship, which is our fourth year as the Official BMW Motorrad team. On the rider front, we are pleased to confirm that Christian will remain with us for another season, and equally happy to announce that Keith will also stay in Tyco BMW livery, albeit, he makes the step up to the Superbike division. For me the decision with Christian was simple. We have both invested a lot in each other and he clearly has the talent to succeed in BSB - so together with the new model RR, I firmly believe 2019 can be his year. With Keith the decision was also quite simple. We asked him to do a job for us in the Superstock class in 2018 and he delivered the championship, which was fantastic. We are under no illusions, the step up to Superbike is a significant one; however we believe Keith has the ability to deliver at any level, and although we should anticipate a settling in period - we do expect to see him running at the front during 2019. Thank you once again to our many loyal racing partners. We look forward to doing it all again with you in 2019. Philip Neil, Team Owner
