Tommy Hill Motorsport
2011 Champion Tommy Hill makes a welcome return to BSB as owner and manager of the all new THM ePayMe Yamaha Team, and with the pairing of John Hopkins, and Stuart Easton as his riders of choice, the team will be aiming to go all the way to the Title.
A big favourite with the fans, ‘The Hopper’, with some 7 years Moto GP experience on his CV, including three times making the podium, remains one of the most experienced riders on the grid. And who will forget the nail biting climax to the 2011 BSB Championships, when the American eventually placed second, in both the race & overall…. behind his new boss, Tommy Hill!
Whilst not contesting every round last year, the Californian showed he can still race a motor cycle, and race it fast.
His team mate is former double British Supersport champion, and four times Macau race winner, Stuart Easton, who can justifiably lay claim to being one of the best Superbike riders in the Championship.
Finishing third overall in the 2009 series, his ‘big bike’ career has otherwise been blighted by injury. However in 2014 he was winner of the BSB Cup, whilst last year was holding third in the Championship before again being sidelined.
Given an incident free season, ‘Ratboy’ should be a regular visitor to the podium, including adding to his career 4 BSB race wins.
Tommy has secured title sponsorship from outsourced payroll providers, ePayMe, and will be fully supported by Yamaha, last seasons Championship winning machine manufacturers.
