Hill prepares for Althea's home event

Tommy Hill is eager to put his increased confidence to good use during the fifth round of the World Superbike Championship at Monza, where he will be representing Althea Racing at their home event.

Although he comes to Italy having failed to finish either race last time out at Assen, Hill managed his best qualifying result of the season in the Netherlands, while he was running well inside the points during the second race when he was forced to retire two laps from home.

However, having seen his plans to test at Monza during the three-week gap between Valencia and Assen scuppered, Hill admits he will need to hit the ground running straight away from free practice.

”I have never raced on the track before so I will have to familiarise with this new circuit starting from Friday's practices. I'm eager to ride and get to know this historical circuit.

“After the first four races of my first Superbike season I'm more confident with my bike set-up and in Monza I want to enter the Superpole because I would like to reach good results for my team and for all my sponsors.”
