Classic TT: 14 Times TT Rostrum Finisher Hillier Re-Signs For CSC Racing

2013 Lightweight TT champion James Hillier will once again compete under the CSC Racing banner at this year’s Classic TT Races, piloting 500 Honda 4 machinery in the four lap race Bennetts Senior race.

14 times a TT podium finisher, the ever calm, cool, consistent Hillier is touted by various astute roads aficionados as one of the world’s leading Mountain Course exponents.

Part of the CSC Racing fold since the Classic TT’s inaugural inception in 2013, Ringwood’s Hillier whilst perhaps not considered to many a yesteryear racing specialist, has reeled off an array of very creditable results in recent times.

Sixth in the Senior Classic encounter of 2013, last year saw him finish a solid seventh, finishing leading Honda mounted competitor.

Joining Hillier for the first time within the CSC Racing stable in August, is two times Junior Manx GP winner Michael Sweeney, who like his high profile team mate will be 500 Honda 4 mounted for the Senior class, plus will pilot 350 Honda machinery within the ultra competitive Junior class.

CSC Racing will also have a presence in the yesteryear Superbike ranks, courtesy of 2011 Newcomers B Manx GP rostrum finisher Wayne Axon, who’s set to compete on a XR69 1100 Suzuki steed.
