Lee Johnston’s Dazzling 2015 North West 200

Lee Johnston has enjoyed a dazzling 2015 Vauxhall International North West 200.

East Coast Racing rider Lee began race action around the triangle with third place finish in opening supersport race following a top class performance from the 675 Daytona Triumph mounted rider.

Second supersport race of the meeting proved to be a cracking race.

Lee was involved in a race long duel with Alastair Seeley and Glenn Irwin. Despite missing out on race victory third place finish was still a brilliant result for the rider who has established himself as one of the world leading pure road racers.

Opening superbike race would prove to be a highly productive one for the 2014 Dundrod 150 super twins race winner.

Fourth place finish was achieved as Lee mixed it with the likes of Alastair Seeley, Bruce Anstey, Ian Hutchinson, John McGuinness and Michael Rutter.

Plus the race saw Lee set his fastest lap speed to date at the North West 200 following lap speed of 121.088 mph.
