Anstey signs for Padgett's

The 'Flying Kiwi' has wasted no time in securing a new team for next season.

New Zealander Bruce Anstey has agreed to ride for Padgett's Honda in 2011.

The seven-time TT winner will compete for the Yorkshire-based outfit at the TT, North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix.

Anstey, who has finished on the TT podium 19 times, enjoyed a successful partnership with the Relentless TAS Suzuki team before it signed Guy Martin last month.

He also set the fastest lap speed ever around a road racing circuit, clocking 133.97 mph in the second Superbike race at Dundrod this year.

It’s unclear whether Padgett's will retain the services of Ian Hutchinson who won all five solo races at this year's TT for the one-rider team.
