Northern Irishman Jamie Hamilton has signed an eleventh our deal with Wilson Craig Honda that will secure his place on the grid for the 2014 road racing season in superbike, supersport and Superstock classes. Hamilton will also ride a Kawasaki ER6 for Stewart Smith Racing in the Lightweight class.
Hamilton, a former British Superstock 600 champion, made his roadracing debut in 2011 with Ryan Farquhar’s KMR Kawasaki team, picking up best newcomer at the 2012 Isle of Man before parting amicably with Farquhar at the end of 2013.
Wilson Craig’s Honda squad has also not been lacking in successes in recent years, taking multiple TT podiums and wins elsewhere with Cameron Donald, Keith Amor and William Dunlop among others.
Speaking about the news, Jamie Hamilton said: "For me it is a dream come true riding for Wilson Craig Racing. When I was a kid starting racing I would look at teams like Wilson Craig’s’ and think that I would love to be a part of that that setup and can now proudly say I am. I have on my helmet a logo DBA, dream it, believe it and achieve it and so far it seems to be working for me."
He continued: "You can see over recent years Wilson has put out fast reliable bikes capable of winning, it’s great to have the opportunity and his support following the likes of Cameron Donald, William Dunlop and Guy Martin. I cannot thank Wilson and his team enough for giving me this opportunity and I hope for a very successful 2014."
