James Hillier has signed a new deal with Quattro Plant Kawasaki for the 2015 international road racing season.

Hillier has retained his seat with the Bournemouth Kawasaki team and will work with the same crew next year, with Muc-Off coming on board again as joint sponsor of the roads team with Quattro Plant.

The Isle of Man TT remains the top priority for Hillier, who won the Lightweight Supertwin race in 2013 and has twice finished as the runner-up in the class, taking second place this year behind Dean Harrison.

The team will also contest the North West 200 and will benefit from additional help from Ichiro Yoda, who is the technical director of Kawasaki's World Superbike team.

Team manager Pete Extance said: "It's fantastic that Kawasaki UK have acknowledged our efforts and success over the years with James Hillier and are now helping us in our attempt to take wins in the Superbike and Senior races of the North West 200 and Isle of Man TT events.

"Yoda brings a wealth of experience from the WSBK squad with the ZX-10R and it will be great for our technicians to get his valuable guidance and technical support.

"We hope to be able to test in Spain with Yoda early next year to start our preparations along with Quattro Plant's support."
