Jamie Hamilton to spearhead Wilson Craig Racing's TT Campaign

Post in Isle of Man TT News

Exciting youngster Jamie Hamilton has confirmed his participation at the 2014 Isle of Man TT races fuelled by Monster Energy, and will ride for Wilson Craig Racing in the 600cc and 1000cc Races.

The Northern Ireland based businessman will run 23-year old Hamilton in five of the six solo races with the Ballymena rider contesting the Dainese Superbike, PokerStars Senior, RL360º Superstock and Monster Energy Supersport Races on Honda machinery. He will again contest the Lightweight TT on board a 650cc ER6 Kawasaki for Stewart Smith Racing.

Hamilton, a former British Junior Superstock Champion, is a prodigious talent and, like his fellow countryman Lee Johnston, has the potential to become a major TT star. Indeed, since he made his debut on the roads for Ryan Farquhar's KMR Kawasaki team towards the end of the 2011 season, he has been a revelation.

After a strong debut year at the TT in 2012, which saw him win the Newcomers Trophy for tenth place in the Lightweight Race, he made great progress around the Mountain Course in 2013. The highlight was fifth place in the Lightweight, only 12 seconds off the podium, but he also impressed in the other classes, taking a brace of 12th's in the two Supersport races and lapping at almost 124mph on his way to 16th in the Superbike Race.

He also proved his road racing credentials at the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix with podiums at both and winning the Irish National Road Race Supersport and Supertwin Championships, dominating both classes by winning all the races he competed in. He also enjoyed considerable success at the Southern 100 and Oliver's Mount, Scarborough.

Having parted amicably with Farquhar over the winter months, Hamilton had been scheduled to ride for John Duggan in the Supersport class but the new tie-up will see him ride for Wilson Craig Racing throughout the season although John Duggan will continue to support his 600 campaign. Wilson Craig has enjoyed great success at the TT, backing numerous well-known riders including Keith Amor, Guy Martin, Cameron Donald and William Dunlop.

Speaking about the news, Jamie Hamilton said: "For me it is a dream come true riding for Wilson Craig Racing. When I was a kid starting racing I would look at teams like Wilson Craig's' and think that I would love to be a part of that that setup and can now proudly say I am. I have on my helmet a logo DBA, dream it, believe it and achieve it and so far it seems to be working for me."

He continued: "You can see over recent years Wilson has put out fast reliable bikes capable of winning, it's great to have the opportunity and his support following the likes of Cameron Donald, William Dunlop and Guy Martin. I cannot thank Wilson and his team enough for giving me this opportunity and I hope for a very successful 2014."
