The Brits - WSBK Season Preview

Furthermore, with such a competitive field, particularly amongst the independent teams, Hill is fully aware that he has a challenge ahead of him.

Still, despite an unspectacular season with Roberto Rolfo at the helm, the Althea team remains one of the better backed privateer teams on the grid, with Honda providing a similar package to that enjoyed by Ten Kate and Stiggy Racing.

Having no team-mate to share data with won't help his cause, but after such a troublesome 2008, just getting on the grid in 2009 will be an important moment in itself for Hill.

Tomorrow - we take a look at the wave of rookies joining in 2009.
