Jamie Hamilton, the young Northern Irish rider who was previously racing for MSS Colchester Kawasaki, will join the Wilson Craig Racing squad and will participate at the 2014 Isle of Man TT in the 600cc and 1000cc events, the Isle of Man TT website confirmed.
Wilson Craig, a Northern Ireland-based businessman and bike enthusiast, will run Hamilton in five out of the six individual races, with Jamie participating in the PokerStars Senior, Dainese Superbike, RL360º Superstock and the Monster Energy Supersport races with Honda motorcycles. Hamilton will also race at the Bikesocial.co.uk Lightweight TT with a 650cc ER6 Kawasaki for the Stewart Smith Racing team. Hamilton said that it’s a dream come true to ride for the Wilson Craig Racing team. He admitted that when he was young he was always watching teams like Wilson Craig and wished that he could be a part of it all.
Over the past few years, Wilson Craig’s team have raced reliable bikes that are fully capable of winning. Hamilton said that it’s great to have the opportunity and the support of a team that has had some legendary racers in its previous line up, including Cameron Donald, William Dunlop and Guy Martin. Hamilton hopes that 2014 turns out to be a very successful year. In 2012, Hamilton made a strong debut at the TT, winning the prestigious Newcomers title for coming tenth place in the Lightweight Race. Hamilton also won the Irish National Road Race Supersport and Supertwin Championships.
