THE BIG TEAM
Bathams SMT Racing
Alec Tague is crew chief for Michael Rutter’s Bathams SMT Racing team which will take one Superbike-spec BMW S1000RR and two Superstockspec versions to the TT. With four TT wins and 14 podiums to Rutter’s credit, the team expect to be operating at the sharp end of the field. Although not factory-supported, this is one of the bigger teams in the TT paddock. They prepare their bikes in their purpose-built premises and compete in the international road races and British Superstock series.
