TAS team breaks nine-year duck

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Sun­day’s TT win was the first su­per­bike race win for the TAS Rac­ing team run by Philip Neill and his fa­ther Hector since Cameron Don­ald won the same race in 2008 on the Re­lent­less Suzukis.

The North­ern Ir­ish­man said: “Th­ese TT race have got tougher and tougher to win ev­ery year. There are so many good bikes and rid­ers now, so this is a very spe­cial day for us. We have come so close a few times be­fore but it has slipped away.

“The BMW is the bike of the moment and we have lots of TT ex­pe­ri­ence.” “Hutchy has pro­vided the fi­nal in­gre­di­ent. He isn’t the eas­i­est rider to work with but, like us, he needs to de­liver so we have tried to give him ev­ery­thing he has asked for over the last two years.”
