Michael Laverty returns to the TYCO BMW squad for 2018.
By Baylon McCaughey.
Michael Laverty returns to the TYCO BMW squad for 2018, and, as an added bonus for the home fans, he will make his return debut in Tyco BMW livery this coming weekend at the Sunflower Trophy Races at Bishopscourt in Northern Ireland – Friday and Saturday, October 20th/21st
Already a three-time race winner on the TAS Racing prepared S1000RR, Laverty will join Christain Iddon in the now familiar, two-pronged attack on British Championship’s premier class.
Laverty is also a 6 time winner of the Sunflower Trophy.
Speaking of his return to Tyco BMW, the Presteigne based Northern Irish rider said:
“I’m delighted to be returning to the Tyco BMW squad for the 2018 season. We enjoyed success together taking race wins in 2015 and 2016. A dip in form lead to a year’s sabbatical, which didn’t prove fruitful, although the experience gained this season will make me a stronger rider. I’m thankful that Philip and the guys within the team have belief in my ability and looked beyond my results this year. To get back on-board the Tyco BMW S1000RR and work with the TAS engineers once again, is the perfect scenario for me.”
Speaking of his return to the Sunflower Trophy Races, which was first won in 1977 by the much missed and loved TT legend Joey Dunlop, six-timer winner Laverty said: “I’m excited to immediately get back to work with the Tyco BMW team this week at the Sunflower Trophy Races. The opportunity to begin preparations so early for next season is fantastic. I’m very motivated for the challenge ahead.”
Team Manager Philip Neill added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Michael back to Tyco BMW after many previous successes together. Michael secured our first British Supersport Championship and recorded our first race victory in Superbike. We enjoyed considerable success together in 2016 including two race victories, although we did lose our way somewhat towards the latter part of the year. One year further on, and we can now use the experience to strengthen our working relationship for 2018.
