Dunlop’s full 2019 programme with Tyco BMW and the new S1000RR is set to be announced in the coming weeks and he’s already relishing using the new bike to hunt for further victories.

“I’m looking forward to working with the TAS Racing boys again this year,” Dunlop said. “We grabbed a Superbike TT win last year, which was a good start and the goal this year will be to go after both the Superbike and Senior TT wins on the Island.

“BMW has launched a new bike, which I should be riding in a few weeks’ time. With the added improvements to the package and a second season with the same team, we should be in a good place to go after both the big wins on the Island.”

“It’s great for TAS Racing to secure another season with Michael and together with our partners BMW and Tyco,” Tyco BMW team manager Philip Neill said. “We are looking forward to a successful season on the all-new BMW S1000RR.

“It was always our plan to continue with Michael, however it was important we took some time together to consider the best way to approach 2019, and we look forward to announcing further details soon.”

Tyco BMW lines up with Christian Iddon and Keith Farmer for the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike championship and will debut the new S1000RR.
