SEELEY TO CAMPAIGN MILWAUKEE BACKED BMW SUPERBIKE AT INTERNATIONAL NORTH WEST 200
TAS Racing is delighted to announce, the award winning Galgorm Resort will support our upcoming International North West 200 [May 8-12] campaign – with NW200 record holder Alastair Seeley onboard a Milwaukee BMW M 1000 RR in the Superbike races.
Galgorm has supported our VIP Hospitality team effort for a number of years in both British championship and also at the north coast event. And after the uncertainty surrounding this year’s event, it’s great to have Galgorm back providing first class Hotel and culinary support for local and international guests at Ireland’s largest outdoor sporting event.
“Everyone knows how important the North West 200 is on my racing calendar, so to be able to add a Milwaukee BMW M 1000 RR Superbike to my current deal is a dream come true. I tested the bike earlier this week and based on that, I now can’t wait to race it on the north coast. It’s a pleasure to be able to launch this deal at Galgorm Resort, a place I love to stay, and hopefully celebrate at after the event in May.”
ALASTAIR SEELEY #34 MILWAUKEE BMW
“Thanks to the support of Milwaukee we are now able to add a BMW Motorrad M 1000 RR Superbike to our deal with Alastair for the International North West 200. He seems to have gelled with the Superbike again quite comfortably so along with our SYNETIQ Superstock machine, we are all looking forward to a great week at my favourite event of the year. Colin and his team at Galgorm have provided first class support for us at TAS Racing in both British championship and at the North West 200 for a number of years. The North West is a local event for us both, so to have their hospitality expertise on site backing our Milwaukee BMW effort on track, as well as some of our partners staying at the fabulous Galgorm setting, is a big plus for us.”
PHILIP NEILL MILWAUKEE BMW TEAM PRINCIPAL
“The North West 200 is right on my own doorstep on the North Coast, so I know the impact it has had, and will have, this year once again for local tourism. The value of being involved with the TAS team at such an iconic local event was an easy decision for us at Galgorm. We like to embrace local ventures, although the NW200 also has some international flavour, so it works well for us. We wish the team every success and I look forward to being on the north coast at such a fabulous event come May.”
COLIN JOHNSTON MANAGING DIRECTOR, GALGORM COLLECTION
“We are delighted to be back on the north coast with TAS Racing once again this year and having record holder Alastair Seeley riding a Milwaukee liveried BMW Motorrad M 1000 RR Superbike, really is an exciting prospect. We have great faith in the TAS Racing team, so I’m sure next month’s event will be a memorable one for all involved. Galgorm is a landmark resort on these shores and a welcome addition to the team’s partnership portfolio. It’s all shaping up to be an enjoyable week, we just need someone to order the weather.”
