Saturday was another successful day ‘between the hedges’ for Tyco BMW with a fine 1-2 in the Superbike race at the Armoy Road Races, Race of Legends, where Guy Martin lead home his BMW Motorrad team-mate William Dunlop.
Team Manager Philip Neill reflects on a successful month on the roads in July and now looks ahead to the Ulster Grand Prix next month, and this weekend’s seventh round of the British Superbike Championship.
“July has been a pretty busy month for everyone at Tyco BMW with six race meetings,” explained Neill. “We can be proud of our efforts with victories at the Southern 100 on the Isle of Man, where Guy took two wins and retained the Solo Championship.
“William then took our Superstock S1000RR to victory at Walderstown, and on Saturday at Armoy, it was pleasing to see Tyco BMW machinery on the top two steps of the podium in the Superbike race.
“We have also enjoyed considerable success with our S1000RRs in BSB races over the past few weeks, as we continue to learn more about the new BMW machines. Alastair Seeley’s second Superstock win of the season was a masterful performance at Brands Hatch and puts him right back in the title hunt.
“As always we appreciate the continued support from BMW Motorrad, Tyco Security Products and all our loyal partners. However, as we reach the end of this busy period, special thanks must go to our team members: everyone within the Tyco BMW team works very hard, and without their combined efforts our success simply would not be possible.
“With further development plans in place we look forward to completing our road racing season at the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix next month and we are also looking forward to the second half of the BSB Championship.”
