Tommy Hill will return to the British Superbike grid on Honda machinery after being confirmed as the replacement for Karl Harris at the Hydrex team.

Hill was heavily linked with the team when it was announced Hydrex and Harris had parted ways, the former World Superbike rider considered an obvious choice having starred on his brief outings with the Worx Crescent Suzuki team earlier in the season.

Left on the sidelines at Cadwell Park following the return of Sylvain Guintoli to the Suzuki team, Hill has since been called upon to join Shaun Muir's team for Croft.

"We are pleased to announce that Tommy will be joining the team from next weekend alongside Stuart Easton. We hope that he adapts quickly to the Hydrex Honda and is able to secure two strong finishes at Croft."

Hill, who started the season riding for the Honda-affiliated Althea Racing team in World Superbikes, competed in just two meetings for Worx Crescent Suzuki, qualifying second on his debut at Mallory Park and managing a best finish of fourth at Brands Hatch.
