Scotland’s Taylor Mackenzie will be back in the Bennetts British Superbike fray at this weekend as joins the Tyco BMW squad.
The 26-year-old has had a great season already aboard BMW Motorrad S1000RR machinery in the National 1000cc Superstock series with Bathams, having taken four wins from thirteen podium finishes.
That alone justifies the decision to give him this opportunity with the TAS Racing team, where he rode back in 2013 and 2014 in the Supersport class.
“I’d like to thank TAS Racing, BMW, and obviously my Bathams Racing team for allowing me to take up this opportunity. Donington is only ten minutes from my house and a track I love racing at, so it couldn’t have come at a better time and a better place to jump back on a Superbike,” said Mackenzie.
“The all-new Tyco BMW S1000RR is similar in many areas to my Superstock bike, including the K-Tech Suspension, so that’s a good starting point. I’m really looking forward to being back with the TAS guys, as quite a lot of the personnel are the same as when I last rode for them. It should be good fun.”
