Having celebrated his first BSB title with Hill in 2011, eponymous team manager Shuan Muir is delighted to be retaining his star rider for the new season.
"Everyone at SMR has been working behind the scenes since the end of the 2011 season. We knew that we wanted to have continuity in the team with Tommy to try and retain the BSB crown, which everyone knows is never easy.
“For that to happen we wanted to give him everything he requires in order to achieve it and we have been working hard on giving him an extremely competitive package and I believe we are already ahead of the game.
“The team are focused and we are obviously delighted to be defending the number one plate with Tommy. He wants to win another BSB championship as much as he wanted to win his maiden one last season.”
With Michael Laverty moving to Honda Racing for 2012, Hill will have a new team-mate in Ian Hutchinson next season [see separate story].
