BRITISH SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP.
The British Superbike Championship is widely recognised as one of the strongest domestic race series in the world. Racers travel from all over the world for their chance to compete amongst the best - with many of the successful riders going on to compete in World Superbikes or MotoGP. The British Superbike Championship is broadcast in 60 countries, resulting in global viewing figures of 44 million.
The race series has an incredibly large fan base who travel around the country to watch the riders push themselves to the limit on some of the country’s most thrilling circuits.
We are lucky enough to have some fantastic teams running BMW Machinery and their riders are amongst the most favoured in the paddock both for their personalities and racing achievements.
2019 will see five new BMW S 1000 RRs take to the grid and with the new model in place, are expected to be among the front-runners and serious title contenders. After a strong showing in 2018, which was the final year for the outgoing S 1000 RR model, we are expecting exceptional results this season.
Run by the TAS racing team, renowned father son duo Hector and Philip Neil, Tyco BMW are the Official Team for BMW Motorrad UK.
For the 2019 season, Christian Iddon remains with the team for the fourth consecutive year and Keith Farmer is promoted from the Superstock class.

Signing for the official Suzuki team for the 2015 BSB season saw him finish 10th in the championship. In 2016 Christian signed with Tyco BMW and proved himself as a Showdown-challenger. His efforts saw him retain his seat, finishing 7th in the Championship in 2017 to claim the Riders Cup. He has high aspirations for the season ahead with a place in the Showdown firmly in his sights.
