Alastair Seeley will return to the Tyco BMW team and partner Ian Hutchinson at the 2017 Vauxhall North West 200.

The Carrickfergus man will ride S1000RRs in the litre-bike races alongside the Gearlink Kawasaki he will champion in Supersport.

Seeley’s previous tenure with the Moneymore based official BMW Motorrad team has brought about nine memorable victories in a number of classes over the years, and team manager Philip Neill is delighted to welcome the Carrickfergus ace back into the fold for one week in May.

“Philip always said if I was stuck he would do his best to help me with bikes for the North West 200 and he has been true to his word. I’m delighted to be back working with the TAS Racing guys and riding the Tyco BMW S1000RR would always have been my first choice for the 1000cc classes,” said Seeley.

“The Superbike class is the one everyone wants to win at the NW200 and I feel this deal gives me my best opportunity. I’ve continued to do my homework and train hard despite the winter uncertainty, and I’ve every confidence that working with Tyco BMW again, will give me a great opportunity to add to my North West wins in May.”
