Hillier to ride in 2011 TT

James Hillier will ride a Bournemouth Kawasaki in this year's Isle of Man TT, it has been confirmed.
James Hillier will make his fourth appearance at the Isle of Man TT this year after confirming he will add the legendary road racing event to his 2011 racing programme.

The 25-year-old will embark on a full season of British Superbike EVO Championship racing with Bournemouth Kawasaki this year, but will supplement it with an outing at the Isle of Man TT too.

Competing in each of the five solo races, Hillier is looking to breakthrough to the front in 2011 having scored ten top 20 finishes from his first 12 TT outings. Most recently, he managed a 17th and 19th in the two Supersport races.

His best result to date is a ninth place finish in the 2009 Senior TT race, while he managed a 12th place in last year's Superstock race.
