BSS: Mackenzie remains at Tyco Suzuki

"It's the first time in my career that I've worked with the same team for two years in a row" - Taylor Mackenzie.
The final rider in Tyco Suzuki's 2014 line-up has been announced with confirmation that Taylor Mackenzie will remain with the team for the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship.

During his second season in the class 'TMac' finished tenth overall, with a best finish of fifth place at Donington Park, but also led his first Supersport race at Brands Hatch on the final day of the season.

"I can't wait to get back on the GSX-R600 and work with Tyco Suzuki for a second year,” said Mackenzie. “It's the first time in my career that I've worked with the same team for two years in a row, just because I've been moving up classes all the time, so a second shot at it will be good.

“We made really good progress throughout the year, so there's no reason why we can't start next year where we finished off at Brands Hatch, which was towards the sharp end. Yeah I'm really looking forward to it."

Team Manager Philip Neill added: "We are delighted to be working with Taylor and the Mackenzie family once again in 2014. He's a young man with a lot of potential and fitted in seamlessly within the Tyco Suzuki set-up this season. He now has a year under his belt on GSX-R600 machinery and proved at Brands Hatch that he has all the ingredients to run at the front in 2014."

Tyco will run John Hopkins and Josh Waters in BSB, plus Guy Martin and William Dunlop for the roads campaign.
