Giugliano joins Iddon at Tyco BMW for 2017 title attack
It has been announced today that Davide Giugliano will be joining Christian Iddon on the Tyco BMW for the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.
Giugliano finished seventh in this season's World Superbike Championship with an impressive five podium finishes throughout 2016, 14 in total during his time in the series. The 27 year old rider from Rome is not only experienced but talented to match and will hope to challenge for the 2017 title in the MCE BSB with TAS Racing.
Iddon will join the team for a second season, he had an impressive start and end to the season - with four consecutive podium finishes at the beginning of 2016 and two top three spots at the end of the year.
Giugliano said: 'I'm very happy to be joining the Tyco BMW team for my first season in the MCE British Superbike Championship. I have ridden on some of the British circuits already during my time in World Superbike, and will look forward to testing and racing on the others next year.
'The MCE British Superbike is a very popular championship with big crowds and I know the British public is passionate about their racing; a bit like the Italian supporters, so I'm hoping to gain many fans with Tyco BMW next season. I know having raced against the BMW S1000RR it is a strong package with a lot of potential, so I'm looking forward to getting started and showing what we can do in the MCE BSB.'
Iddon said: 'I'm obviously happy to be back with Tyco BMW in 2017 and I want to do a full season of what we showed flashes of this year. We have shown what we are capable of with the pace we had at the start of the season and we also had a good end to the year too but we have to be aiming for that consistently.
'We have made a few little steps forward with a test after the season and I feel that we have a good direction for when we start testing again. The target is to win the championship, but first we need to try and get into the Showdown. We know it isn't going to be easy but continuity and consistency is key and we are looking forward to getting started.'
