New team member Hodson, recently enjoyed a very productive Southern 100 tenure, which yielded an array of impressive results including finishing runner up in a quite compelling opening Super Twins race.

A relative newcomer to the classic racing scene, alongside piloting the Ruthless Racing / Geoff Bates Racing Honda’s, Hodson’s third Classic TT expedition will also see him ZXR 750 Kawasaki mounted for the four lap RST Superbike encounter.

Another hungry, talented next generation International roads exponent, he’s another one to watch next month at the Classic TT Races, which takes place from the 17th-26th of August.
