James Hillier: WTF Racing for TT 2024


James Hillier switches to the Honda Fireblade for the 2024 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races with WTF Racing.

James Hillier joins forces with WTF Racing for the 2024 RST Superbike, Superstock, and Milwaukee Senior TT Races, riding a Honda Fireblade for the first time and focusing on environmental responsibility.

James Hillier has partnered with WTF Racing for the upcoming RST Superbike, RL360 Superstock, and Milwaukee Senior TT Races in 2024. The team has been owned and operated by Alan Gardner and Paul Curran, who have previously provided Hillier with Yamaha machinery. However, this time, the team will be supporting Hillier on his Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade, which is quite surprising as he has been with Yamaha for the past two years. Despite this, Hillier is confident that the Honda will help him lap more quickly and push for podium positions in the 1000cc races. The team will also be participating in the Saudi Arabian sands for the Dakar rally in 2025.

“Riding the Hondas will be a new challenge for me after two years on the Yamaha, but given the performance we’ve seen of late from the Fireblade, whether in Superbike or Superstock trim, it’s one I’m really looking forward to. The Honda is proven to be quick straight out of the box, which shows how good the base setting is, and it’s a good all-round package. You only have to look at the entry to see how many Hondas there are, and that speaks volumes,” said James Hillier.

Hillier and WTF Racing will be focusing on environmental issues as well, with a proactive approach to carbon neutrality. They are committed to energy-efficient programs and logistics as well as recycling racing components once they reach the end of their racing lifespan. It’s quite impressive to see the team’s dedication to racing responsibly while keeping their focus on winning.

“When it comes to racing, especially a high level, saving the planet seems to be low on the priorities list. WTF have committed to racing responsibly from the outset and have already make considerable inroads to ensuring that the second our trucks leave for the North West 200 and then onto the Isle of Man TT, we will have already offset our carbon footprint,” said Alan Gardner, WTF Racing Team Owner. He concluded, “Our name says ‘We’re The Future’ but foremost, we’re a race team, and our focus will always be to win but that also means winning in the race to save the planet.”
