The Isle of Man TT's fastest-ever newcomer Peter Hickman has signed for the GBmoto Kawasaki team for next year's 2016 event.

Hickman, who won Saturday's Macau Grand Prix, will represent the team at the international road races, including the TT and North West 200 in 2016.

The Louth rider said it's the "best package on the grid".

In 2014, Hickman set the fastest-ever lap speed by a debutant at both the NW200 and TT races.

The 28-year-old won Saturday's Macau Grand Prix by 6.267 seconds, ahead of Martin Jessop.
