Loughlin and Hinds to join Bonetti and Yamanaka

Team ILR have named a four-rider line-up for the 2020 TT.

Masayuki Yamanaka and Stefano Bonetti will be joined by newcomers Joe Loughlin and James Hind.

Loughlin will contest the Lightweight and Supersport races, while Hind has so far confirmed he'll line up in the Lightweight.

After making his Mountain Course debut at the 2018 Manx Grand Prix, 19-year-old Hind finished third in the Lightweight Classic TT.

He followed this up with two victories in the Manx Grand Prix Lightweight Races and was leading both the Junior and Senior MGP races at a record-breaking pace, before being forced to retire from both.

The news also confirms that 10-time TT winner and the team’s manager, Ian Lougher, will not contest the TT next year.
