Ulster GP: Johnson teams with Wilson Craig

'I'm especially looking forward to racing the Honda Superbike. I've only ever raced Superstock bikes at the Ulster, so I'm hoping I can give the boys a run at the front' - David Johnson.
Australian rider David Johnson has joined Northern Ireland team Wilson Craig Racing to contest the MCE Ulster Grand Prix, which takes place from August 10-13.

Johnson became the fastest ever Aussie to lap the Isle of Man TT Mountain Course this summer following a lap of almost 131mph on the Norton SG5 on his way to seventh place in the RST Superbike race

He made his debut at Dundrod in 2010, picking up the best newcomer award.

“I'm excited to get back with Wilson Craig as I rode for him in 2011 at the Sunflower. His bikes were always very well prepared and fast,” said Johnson.

“I love the Ulster Grand Prix and I'm especially looking forward to racing the Honda Superbike. I've only ever raced Superstock bikes at the Ulster, so I'm hoping I can give the boys a run at the front.”

Team owner Wilson Craig added: “Australia has produced some very good road racers as we've seen within our team in the past and I've no doubt that David can continue that trend.

“His results at this year's Isle of Man TT have proved just that. He's coming off the back of a fantastic TT and we're all looking forward to working with him.”
