Hillier Set For Sixth Successive Classic TT Tenure With CSC Racing

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

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 eighth, finishing third in terms of Honda mounted competitors.

12 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.

Same as from 12 months ago, joining Hillier within the CSC Racing stable in August will be former TT Privateers champion Dan Cooper, who like his fellow high profile team mate will be 500 Honda mounted.

Stroud’s Cooper will also lead the CSC challenge in the Junior class, for which he carries the illustrious number 1 plate.
