Whilst fellow perennial Dundrod, Mountain Course podium challenger Johnston switches to a GSX-R 1000 Suzuki mount for action at New Zealand’s most famous roads course.

Following in the footsteps of Guy Martin and Michael Dunlop, attention a plenty will be placed upon Johnston and Cummins in December at the final round of the Suzuki Series.
