British Superbike: Tyco BMW And Davide Giugliano Split

TAS Racing and Davide Giugliano have amicably agreed to end their contract with immediate effect. This follows the determination that Davide’s recovery from an injury sustained in his crash during the free practices at the second round of the British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch is more protracted than first envisaged.

Philip Neill – Team Manager:

“It’s with deep regret that the current circumstances have not allowed us to complete the 2017 British Superbike season with Davide, as we had very high hopes of producing a strong championship campaign. However, the most important thing at this time, is that Davide recovers fully from his injuries before deciding where his future lies. Taking all of that into consideration, we wish him well with his recovery and any future projects.”

Davide Giugliano:

Unfortunately, my rehabilitation work following the injury still needs more time. Taking this into consideration, the team and I have jointly agreed on an early termination to the agreement. This will allow Tyco BMW to continue in the championship in the best possible way, letting me focus on my full recovery, in order to return to riding as soon as possible. I would like to say thank you to Philip Neill, the TAS Racing team and BMW for their work and co-operation. I wish all the guys at TAS the best in the current season and the future.”

The team is currently looking at various options to replace the talented Italian former World Superbike star, with an announcement expected early next week [commencing June 19th]. The optimum goal is to employ a suitable candidate and again fulfil the required two rider line-up for round five of this year’s BSB Championship at Snetterton on July 2.
