Iddon and Farmer pair up for 2019 Bennetts BSB season

Friday, November 23 2018

The TAS Racing team has today (Friday) announcemed its 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship line-up with Christian Iddon returning for a fourth consecutive season alongside reigning Superstock 1000 champion Keith Farmer.

Iddon returns with the team onboard the all-new BMW S1000RR after narrowly missing out on the Showdown this season through injury and is joined by four-time support class champion Keith Farmer, who makes the switch as reigning Superstock 1000 champion.

Tyco joins TAS Racing for an eighth season in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, establishing one of the longest partnerships in the series with the Official BMW Motorrad team.

The announcement was made at Motorcycle Live at Birmingham NEC, where the Bennetts BSB championship has a dedicated day tomorrow (Saturday) when fans can meet riders and check out their bikes. They also have a chance to win a money-can't-buy prize in a super ticket competition at the show.

Iddon said: "Obviously I'm really excited to be back with TAS Racing. The new BMW will be the fresh start we need and I'm excited to ride the new bike after hearing such great things about it. Both myself and the team feel we have unfinished business so we will be looking to put that right in 2019. I'm genuinely grateful for their continued support for our fourth consecutive season."

Farmer said: "After an excellent first year with TAS Racing claiming the Superstock 1000 title, I'm absolutely thrilled to be given the chance to move into Superbike. It shows that Philip truly believes in me and what better way to switch into BSB - with a new BMW that has been improved greatly. I'm so pumped to get testing and get things rolling now for 2019. A massive thank you to Philip and all at BMW and the team for believing in me and giving me this opportunity."

Tickets for all 2019 MSV rounds of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship are now on sale and make the perfect Christmas gift for superbike fans. Tickets and camping prices are frozen at 2018 rates until the end of the year and will be posted in a special presentation wallet in time for Christmas if ordered before midday on Wednesday 19 December.
