TT 2024: Ashcourt Racing’s Johnston Withdraws

Due to the on-going rehabilitation process in relation to a leg injury, picked up during testing in Spain (Almeria Circuit), Ashcourt Racing’s Lee Johnston has been forced to withdraw from the 2024 TT Races.

2019 Supersport Race 1 winner, Johnston synonymous with the 13-plate, issued the following when summing up his non-Mountain Course racing participation.

“I’m absolutely devasted to be missing the TT for a second year. The last 12 months have without doubt been the toughest of my racing career, but the support from my team, family and the fans has been incredible.

I’ve been working with some amazing medics and physiotherapists since the crash and I’ve been doing everything possible to get the leg strong enough to race at the TT, but it’s not to be. I go to the TT because I want to win and, these days, everything must be perfect to get on the podium and that includes fitness.

It’s another huge blow for both me and the team but they’ve been fantastic, and I’ve now got the time to get myself back to 100%.”

Although not racing, Johnston will still be on IOM shores this month, in June, forming part of the Radio TT squad.

Last week, he was on pundit, commentary for the BBC at the Briggs Equipment Northwest 200.
