James Hillier is aiming to be on top form at this years Isle of Man TT. James competing for Quattro Plant Muc off Kawasaki had a consistent North West 200 and has already during practice week at TT 2014 lapped at 126.2 mph in superstock practice where overall he is currently second fastest.
Nicknamed dynamite James has start number 2 for TT 2014 across all classes where he is hoping to achieve better results across all classes as achieved in TT 2013. The reigning lightweight TT winner believes there is every chance of repeating his brilliant debut TT victory from last year.
The superstock class is always competitive and in recent years Kawasaki mounted riders have being near the front in superstock TT races and for 2014 James thinks there is a good chance of being near the front this year in the race. Quattro Plant Muc off Kawasaki superstocker is a top all round bike which has good speed and James is set to spring a surprise or two this year in superstock TT.
James feels his best performance during TT 2013 was in the senior TT race finishing in 4th position lapping at 131.3 mph to become the fifth fastest rider in TT history. Plus in the race James passed on the final lap John McGuinness as he battled for a podium finish.
To be near the front nowadays in superbike and senior TT races arguably you need to be lapping in the 130.5 and 131 mph brackets and James is confident he can do this at TT 2014 where he could join an elite bunch of riders who have won two TT races.
