Quattro Plant Kawasaki Set for 2013 Isle of Man TT

2013 Isle of Man TT

The official Kawasaki UK British Superbike Team, Quattro Plant Kawasaki, has completed its lineup for the 2013 Isle of Man TT.

The team has once again signed James Hiller, who competed with the team in 2012. Hiller, along with newly-signed Steve Heneghan, will compete on Kawasaki Ninja machinery at the 2013 Isle of Man TT.

Hiller, of Bournemouth, finished second in last year’s Lightweight TT Race, which was his first TT podium. He also took 5th place in the Joey Dunlop TT Solo Championship with solid top ten finishes in all five races at the TT in 2012. He has a fastest lap of 127.828mph (17:42.59), which he set in last year’s Dainese Superbike Race, which makes him the 17th fastest TT rider of all time.

Heneghan, from Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, first competed at the TT in 2009. He broke the 120 mph barrier for the first time in last year’s Royal London 360 Superstock Race, clocking 120.779mph (18:44.60).

Pete Extance (Quattro Plant Kawasaki Team Owner) says: “It is great to have James back on board again in 2013. He has a great relationship with his crew chief and the staff in the team and has become part of the Kawasaki family.

“I firmly believe James will be challenging for top honours on the Isle of Man in 2013. We are also looking forward to working with Steve Heneghan for the first time and we will be looking to helping Steve improve his times at this year’s TT.”

Paul Phillips (TT and Motorsport Manager, Isle of Man Government) says: “James has steadily improved every year on the Mountain Course and I believe that he is now in the perfect position to be challenging for podiums and wins across all classes. He represents the next generation of TT stars and I’m sure will be a fans favourite for many years to come.”
