Bournemouth rider James Hillier is adamant he is ready to earn a big win at the Isle of Man TT having served his apprenticeship.

The Quattro Plant Muc-Off Kawasaki rider is contesting six races at the 2016 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy and is focused on adding to his Lightweight TT Race win in 2013

He will pilot the Kawasaki ZX-10R in the RST Superbike, PokerStars Senior and RL360 Quantum Superstock races and the Kawasaki ZX-6R in the two Monster Energy Supersport encounters.

Hillier will also climb aboard the ER6 650cc Kawasaki for the Bennetts Lightweight TT race, which has been increased from three laps to four for 2016 and will run on Wednesday 8th June.

The third-fastest rider in the history of the event, the 31-year old has one win and six podiums to his name around the Mountain Course.

Last year saw him claim second in the PokerStars Senior, third in the RST Superbike, fourth in the RL360 Superstock and second in the Monster Energy 2 Supersport races.

Indeed, he finished all six of his races inside the top six, including another podium in the lightweight, as well as a scintillating lap of 132.414mph in the senior, the final race of the week.
