TT history maker Ian Hutchinson has signed for Prodigy front man Keith Flint's Team Traction Control for the 2015 Isle of Man TT races.

The 35-year-old from Yorkshire is the only man to win five solo TT races in the same year.

The Bingley racer had been due to compete for Tsingtao Racing on an MV Agusta but the team has opted to skip the event to continue development.

The eight-time TT winner said: "It is a privilege to work with Keith Flint."

Hutchinson - who famously won five races in a week in 2010 - is among the top contenders in the Superbike and Superstock races on Paul Bird's Kawasaki.

He will represent Flint's British championship outfit on a Yamaha R6 in the two Supersport races.

Hutchinson added: "I have worked with Grant [Bunting] from TTC before so to be able to have this opportunity to work with them is just what I need.

"I want to go out and have a good go at it that's for sure."

Hutchinson has undergone more than 30 operations in the past four years following a crash at Silverstone.
