Vancraft Triumph's Jimmy Hill reckons he is ready for British Supersport action following a successful pre-season test at the Spanish Alcarras track where he and team-mate Josh Caygill were joined on track my Marc Marquez.
Marquez, who is still suffering from his Sepang highside, shared tarmac time with the two Brits as they completed successful trials of their Daytona 675cc triples. Hill says he is now ready for the next session at Brands Hatch and Snetterton in the middle of this month.
"Testing in Alcarras was fantastic, it was a new track for the entire Vancraft Triumph team but we soon managed to learn it and get back into the groove. On the first day we spent it getting comfortable on the Triumph 675 and also learning the track and where it went! After half a day things felt great and I was already working on setting up the bike to suit me," said Hill Jr.
"I loved the Alcarras circuit and by the end of the test I felt mega, my times were good and I was able to end with a good base set up ready for the official BSB tests at Brands and Snetterton in a few weeks. I'd like to pass on a huge thanks to all the Vancraft Triumph team, FTR Suspension, ImageDzign, RMA Stewart, KGN Pillenger, Shoei, Sidi and RST for all their help this season so far."
