Hill returns to BSB with Hydrex

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.

2007 Tommy hill on yamaha on pirelli tyres. Peolpe who beat him either dunlop/michelin. Tommy hills lap times from that year are are quicker or nearly as quick as camiers on most tracks. That is FACT! Could an average rider do that? Check tsl timing.

What about one of these teams giving some of the superstock guys a go, after all that is what the series is for, to provide a feeder class into BSB. Would have been a good chance to invest some time in a newcomer for next year.
