TAS Racing, who will operate under the all-new SYNETIQ BMW Motorrad banner during 2020, are today launching their new e-magazine title ‘Full Gas’ – with the feature article offering an exclusive insight on 16-time TT winner Ian Hutchinson, who will return to the TAS Racing set-up when the ‘Pure Road Racing’ season re-commences.
Hutchinson, who had great success with TAS Racing on S1000RR machinery back in 2016 and 2017, winning races in British championship, the Isle of Man TT, North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix, said of the SYNETIQ BMW Motorrad appointment.
“I honestly thought our racing days with Ian had come to an end after our successful partnership through 2016/17. However we are clearly delighted that Ian was not only available but extremely keen on a return to TAS Racing. People may differ in their opinions on the various riders but one thing everyone can agree on, is the utter determination shown by Hutchy time and time again. It never ceases to amaze me the amount of dedication and effort the man puts into his preparation for racing, and for that reason he is the perfect man to lead SYNETIQ BMW into this new chapter of our racing journey. We can only hope there is an opportunity available to celebrate the partnership during 2020.”
“Putting this deal together with Philip [Neill] and SYNETIQ BMW to do the International Road Races is perfect for me really,” said Hutchinson, before candidly adding: “I was secretly hoping that would be the case all winter if I’m honest. I had great success and a lot of fun the last time I rode the S1000RR for TAS Racing, and having prepared so well in January and February I’m ready to race when all this lockdown is over.”
