Roads: Lee Johnston looking for new team after East Coast withdrawal

1 of 1

Lee Johnston is looking for another ride for the 2017 roads season after his East Coast Racing team have opted to take a sabbatical from competition next year.

After seven years of involvement in motorcycle racing, Phil Reed has opted to ease running the privateer team due to personal and business commitments. 


Most recently the team has enjoyed success, including TT podiums and a number of international wins on BMW and Triumph machinery with Lee Johnston and previously with Gary Johnson. 

Speaking to MCN, Johnston said: “We have had three great years and enjoyed a lot of success, so I am very grateful for all the help that the boss Phil Reed and my crew chief, Jamie Ferguson have given me. 

“I have a few good offers on the table already for 2017 and I am looking forward to getting back in the mix.”
