TT2014: Hillier satisfied with race week conclusion

James Hillier rounds off his 2014 Isle of Man TT exploits with a runer-up finish in the Lightweight race and fifth in the prestigious Senior showpiece on the Quattro Plant Kawasaki
Quattro Plant Kawasaki's James Hillier was satisfied with his performances in the second part of the 2014 Isle of Man TT race week after two strong results on Friday.

Hillier finished as the runner-up behind Dean Harrison in the Lightweight race and earned a top-six finish in fifth place in the blue riband Senior.

The Bournemouth rider was overhauled by Bruce Anstey on the final lap, who took fourth place by 1.4 seconds.

“I'm really pleased with how this year's TT has ended and whilst the first half of race week was frustrating, the second half couldn't have gone much better,” he said.

“Obviously, second place in the Lightweight was one place down on last year but after all the trouble we had with the bike during practice, I'd have quite happily taken second if someone had offered me it this morning.

“I had no big dramas during the Senior but John [McGuinness] was going a lot quicker than in previous races and it took me a while to catch him although, at the same time, I was surprised that Michael [Dunlop] and Guy [Martin] took longer than I thought to catch me.

“It was great riding around with them and although Bruce did me again on the last lap, I'll take the result.”
