MarTrain Racing sign Gary Johnson
Johnson to line up alongside Dean Harrison for Supersport road races
MAR-TRAIN Racing have announced that Lincolnshire man Gary Johnson will compete for them at this year’s North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT in the Supersport classes.
Johnson will team up alongside Dean Harrison in the Supersport races on-board the Mar-Train Racing Yamaha YZR R6.
34-year-old Johnson saw success in the Supersport class at the Isle of Man TT in both 2011 and 2014 finishing on top of the podium as well as placing on the podium at last year’s North West 200.
With both riders, Johnson and Harrison, fellow TT winners it gives the Official Yamaha UK Team a formidable two pronged attack seeing to add to their two International Road Race Wins form 2014.
Johnson said: ”I’m really looking forward to getting on the Yamaha, it’s one of the fastest bikes out there and it would be fantastic to win three TT’s for three different manufacturers.
“The Mar-Train boys do a proper job, they’ve won North West 200’s and came close to winning three British Championships from three attempts so you cannot argue with their credentials. Contacting Tim about a Super Sport ride was an easy decision, the standard of his bikes and team are unquestionable.
“I’m also looking forward to teaming up with Dean, he’s one of my good friends in the paddock and his speed speaks for itself so he will be one of my biggest rivals come race day.”
Johnson has just completed testing in Spain with his GBMoto team whilst Harrison and Mar-Train have also been taking part in the Official Yamaha test at the Alcarras circuit in Lleida.
Both Mar-Train Yamaha riders will return to Northern Ireland to take part in further tests ahead of the North West 200 which takes place from 10th to 16th May just before the Isle of Man TT.
