Auto-Trail, one of the UK's largest motorhome manufacturers, has announced its support of the Tyco BMW British Superbike Team for the 2017 season, supplying the BMW factory team with a bespoke motorhome for use throughout the year.

Motorhomes are a popular mode of transport and accommodation for motorsport teams and fans, providing the management, riders or support crew a relaxing and comfortable space to conduct meetings, give interviews or just unwind after a long day's racing.

The Tyco BMW team consists of three top level riders for 2017 - young talent, Christian Iddon; TT legend, Ian Hutchinson and new arrival for the season Davide Giugliano.

Russell Hensman, Auto-Trail's Marketing Manager, commented: "We are thrilled to have teamed up with such a force in the British Superbike roster, Tyco and BMW are two fantastic brands and Philip's team is one of the most recognisable and popular on the circuit; we look forward to working with them further in the coming seasons."

The team have chosen a 2017 Frontier Serrano, which features a fixed rear bed, a luxury bathroom and a lounge area towards the cab; all trimmed in leather. Storage space has been further increased by raising the height of the bed, creating sufficient space for a paddock scooter under the rear bed with easy access. The exterior of the motorhome has been adorned with the team branding ensuring the relationship is prominent both beside the track and on the road.

The vehicle was handed over to Philip Neill, Team Managing Director, at the first race of the season at Donington Park, where the team achieved two hard-earned podium finishes.
