“I'm excited to get back with Wilson Craig as I rode for him in 2011 at the Sunflower,” said Johnson. “His bikes were always very well prepared and fast! I love the Ulster GP 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 boss Wilson Craig added: “Australia has produced some very good road racers, as we have seen within our team in the past, and Ive no doubt, that David can continue that trend, His results at this years IOM TT have proved just that, he is coming off the back of a fantastic TT, and we are all looking forward to working with him at the MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix.”
