Former Suzuki riders Guy Martin and William Dunlop will be riding BMW machinery at next year’s Isle of Man TT. Their team, TAS Racing, made the switch to BMW’s S1000RR, and both riders seem well pleased.
“Moving to BMW Motorrad machinery is the reason I’m still racing next year and not retiring,” said Martin. “I’ll always give it my all and to be with a quality manufacturer like BMW is mega.”
Dunlop also commented: “Moving to BMW Motorrad is an exciting change and one I’m looking forward to. We all saw what the BMW S1000RR was capable of achieving this season, so with the expertise of the guys at TAS Racing, I’m pretty sure we can do a good job in 2015.”
Martin and Dunlop, as well as TAS Racing’s third rider, Alastair Seeley, will compete at the big three international road races next season – the North West 200, the Ulster Grand Prix, and the Isle of Man TT.
