Michael Rutter will be managing the team as he steps down from short circuit racing at this time.
After my amicable split from Moto Rapido I had no immediate plans but incredibly, within forty eight hours I had a deal to ride for the Bathams BMW Team. Being back on a machine I had so much success on in 2016 is the best way for me to get back to enjoying racing. I already feel at home with Michael and the team so I’m looking forward to riding over the three race event at Brands Hatch. I can’t thank everyone involved enough for their help, commitment and support throughout the past week. Roll on Brands!
Taylor will test the BMW S1000RR next week at Silverstone before heading down to Kent.
