4th Place Finish For Lee Johnston At Silverstone 1st Round

Ashcourt Racing

The 2019 season got underway at Silverstone this weekend and what a weekend it was. The weather being unusually sunny and hot, it added an extra element to the races at Silverstone.

Our very own Ashcourt Racing rider Lee Johnston who hasn’t competed in the in the British Supersport class for 8 years, returned with an impressive performance.

Lee’s 5th finish in qualifiying set him up for the 18 lap sprint style race event.

Lap 4 of the race saw Lee struggle with some slight braking issues meaning he lost a few seconds, however by lap 15, he had made it back to 4th place from when he’d left it after the first lap.

Sunday’s race started with Lee in 4th place and ended the same way. Capping off a great return to the Supersport class. Despite the initial braking issues early on, Lee is happy with his performance and feels confidence in the fact his pace was up there with the leaders.
