Two-time TT winner Cameron Donald has signed to ride for the County Londonderry-based Wilson Craig Honda team for the 2013 road racing season.
The Australian claimed both his TT wins in 2008 and narrowly missed out on adding to his tally this year.
He said: "We'll give it a really good go this year and I'm confident that we've got as good a chance as anyone around the Mountain Course."
He finished one second down on Bruce Anstey in this year's Supersport race.
Donald added: "This is now my third year with the team and we've gone really close at the Isle of Man in both 2011 and 2012. I've got a lot of history with Wilson and he has supported me for a large part of my career".
Wilson Craig has supported teams at the TT since 2005 and backed Uel Duncan's team in 2006, which saw Donald achieve a memorable runner-up place in that year's Senior Race.
He said: "We were really close to the top step in 2012 and I'm sure with another year under our belts and the experience that the team gained last year, we will be a match for anyone. With only one rider for next year we'll be looking to focus all our efforts in doing the best for Cameron."
