Hillier stays with Quattro Plant Kawasaki for 2015

Published: 12 December 2014

Isle of Man TT winner James Hillier will remain with the Quattro Plant Kawasaki team for the 2015 Isle of Man TT, with factory support for the privateer team as they set out to translate their Supertwin success to the big bike classes.

The team, who took a pair of superbike top tens in 2014, including fifth in the Senior TT, are set to benefit from increasing support from the Japanese manufacturer, including the input of Kawasaki WSB legend Ichiro Yoda.

Pete Extance, Quattro Plant Kawasaki team boss commented: “It’s fantastic that Kawasaki 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 at the TT Races and North West 200.  Yoda brings a wealth of experience from the WSBK squad with the ZX10 R and it will be great for our technicians to get his guidance and technical support. We hope to be able to test in Spain with Yoda early next year to start our preparations.”

The announcement that the team will receive factory support comes days after GBmoto Kawasaki announced they would also receive direct support as they take to the roads with Gary Johnson.
