East Coast Racing names riders

"We've got a very good little team for our assault on the 2011 Championship."
Reigning British Supersport Cup champion's East Coast Racing will graduate to the main BSS class in 2011, running a new line-up of Gary Johnson and Lee Johnston on last year's title winning GNS Hondas.

East Coast won the 2010 Cup title with Pat McDougall, while numerous riders filled the second seat.

"2010 was a learning year for the team and we had a few riders come and go,” admitted team manager and owner Phil Reed. “Karl Harris and Tom Grant rode for us briefly, Jason [O'Halloran] joined us at Knockhill and his results were never out of the top six for the remainder of the year.

“We all wish him well for the Superstock Championships this year and thank him for helping put East Coast on the map. Pat also rode extremely well for us all year, eventually winning the British Supersport Cup after some bad luck and injuries in the close of the season.”

Turning to the new rider line-up, Reed said: “I have been watching Gary on the track and on the roads and got to know him well in Macau where we managed to sort out a deal. I was pleased to speak with Lee when he called and think we've got a very good little team for our assault on the 2011 Championship.

“We will be going testing in March and getting the riders comfortable with the bikes and team and ready to race at Brands at the end of April."
