Hill snapped up by Hydrex Honda

Tommy Hill takes Karl Harris' slot for the rest of the 2009 BSB season

TOMMY HILL will replace Karl Harris at Hydrex Honda for the rest of this year's British Superbike Championship.

Hill, who parted company from the World Superbike scene earlier this year, impressed many team bosses with his performances on the Worx Crescent Suzuki earlier this season, when he rode in place of injured Frenchman Sylvain Guintoli.

Hill has now been snapped up by Hydrex Honda after the team sacked Karl Harris earlier in the week for a string of poor performances.

Hydrex Honda team boss Shaun Muir:

"We are pleased to announce that Tommy will be joining the team from next weekend alongside Stuart Easton. We hope that he adapts quickly to the Hydrex Honda and is able to secure two strong finishes at Croft."
