Josh Elliott will defend his British Superstock 1000cc Championship title in 2016 on factory-supported German machinery having secured a dream deal to ride for local team Tyco BMW.

The Fermanagh racer took his maiden British title on Kawasaki machinery this term with five wins and 11 podiums.

"The TAS Racing team has a lot of history and I've always looked up to them in the paddock, so to be part of that set-up is the best Christmas present ever," explained Elliott, who ironically broke the hearts of his new team by outgunning Carrick's Alastair Seeley to the Stock 1000 crown.

"After winning the championship the goal for next season was obviously to try and get on to a competitive Superbike, but the biggest thing for me was always to have an opportunity to keep on winning, and it's here at TAS Racing that I know I can do that," said the 21-year-old.

Tyco BMW team manager Philip Neill said: "We really do see Josh as a future Superbike star."
