By Paul Lindsay

TAS Racing have announced an extended partnership with Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, which will take the association into a sixth season as title sponsor - namely Tyco BMW in both British Superbike and on the International Road Racing scene.

The 2017 British Superbike line-up will be announced on the BMW Motorrad stand at Motorcycle Live in Birmingham's NEC this week, but team manager Philip Neill is delighted to continue this long association with Tyco Security Products.

Neill said: "We have had a long-standing association with Tyco Security Products and are delighted that this latest deal will take us into our sixth season together.

"Phil Dashey and his dedicated team have become very much part of our extended team at TAS Racing and with a revised rider line-up for 2017 imminent, we are looking forward to another successful season together."

Dashey, Vice President & General Manager EMEA, said: "Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, are thrilled to renew the partnership with TAS Racing for 2017, and we are super excited about our '17 line-up.

"Christian (Iddon) has settled into being a regular podium finisher and we feel he can genuinely challenge in all conditions for the title in 2017," commented Dashey.

"And well, what about our newest member or should I say 'pilot'.

"Davide (Giugliano) brings a plethora of Italian flare and experience, which means he's sure to be speed acclimatised right from the get-go.

"It's genuinely going to be very, very exciting this year, and we have still to announce our International Road Racing and BSB support class riders," he added.
