ROB Hodson has inked a deal with Dafabet Devitt Racing as he signs on for a full 2020 roads assault.
The 30-year old will contest all of the International road races and will compete in the Superbike, Superstock, Supersport and Lightweight classes with the Isle of Man TT Races and Southern 100 being the main focus for the season.
There is also the possibility he will race the Northwest 200 and Ulster GP, should the latter run, and the team also plans to race at a number of National Superstock 1000 rounds.
“An opportunity like this doesn’t come along every day so it goes without saying that I’m over the moon to have joined the Dafabet Devitt Racing team for 2020 and I’m really grateful for the faith they’ve shown in me,” Hodson said.
“I’d like to think I’ve had some strong results so far in my career and believe the team can help me make further progress and improve both my results and speeds at all of the meetings. They have a history of doing similar with other riders so I’m more than hopeful of continuing that trend in 2020.
“I’ve been running my own team for the last few years so it will be a different experience for me to concentrate solely on my riding but one I’m really looking forward to with good results at the TT and Southern 100 both mine, and the team’s, main aim.
“It’s easy to see why the team have been successful as their preparation is second to none with all of the bikes immaculately turned out and there are so many positives about joining them. We’re looking to have a strong and enjoyable year and I’d also like to express my gratitude to my loyal sponsors who have been with me the last few years and fully support my plans for 2020.”
