Double British champion and 12-time International North West 200 winner Alastair Seeley will campaign a Tyco BMW S 1000 RR in the Pirelli National Superstock class in 2015.

The diminutive Carrick man will also ride a full stable of Tyco BMW machinery at the North West 200 next May.

“It’s great to be back with TAS Racing and to be part of the whole Tyco BMW set-up for next year,” he said.

“With factory support and what I believe to be the best machinery for both the Superstock class and the North West 200, I really can’t wait to get started.

“TAS Racing gave me the opportunity to win two British championships so the goal this year is to repay them and hopefully make that three.

“I’m also happy to be back in the Superstock class as I feel the BMW S 1000 RR will give me a great chance to win the championship and I’ve already started doing my homework for next season.”

TAS Racing has joined forces with BMW Motorrad for the 2015 season. The team will run under the title – Tyco BMW.

William Dunlop and Guy Martin have been retained for the roads, while Seeley will be joined by Michael Laverty and England’s Tommy Bridewell in the British championship.
