TAS Racing secured their 18th win at this year’s Isle of Man TT and despite the unfortunate incident involving Hutchy, whilst disputing the lead in the Senior TT, both he and the team covered themselves in glory with the opening day RST TT Superbike win followed up by the coveted manufacturers choice – the Superstock TT confirming once again the credentials of the BMW S1000RR.
After setting some promising sector times and an opening lap of 131.61mph Hutchy placed Tyco BMW in a strong position to add the Senior TT Trophy to their collection from earlier in the week.
Unfortunately the event ended amid concern for Ian however we are pleased to confirm he is recovering from his injuries in hospital in Liverpool. We would like to commend the medical and emergency staff together with the IOM TT organisers for their swift action following the incident.
Philip Neill – Team Manager: ‘This year’s TT was once again a roller coaster of emotions . . . on the positive side we achieved our first Superbike victory together with Tyco and BMW, repeated last year’s Superstock victory on the S1000RR and increased the TAS Racing TT success story to 18 victories while helping Hutchy reach the 16 win mark.
Unfortunately the event finished on the downside for us with Hutchy’s accident during the Senior race when battling for the lead. Thankfully however Ian will recover from his injuries and everyone involved with TAS Racing wish him a speedy recovery.
Once again I would like to thank our partners Tyco Security Products and BMW Motorrad together with our many associate sponsors and friends’
