East Yorkshire is guaranteed a prominent presence at this year’s International Road Races, following the recent confirmation that Lee Johnston will lead the newly formed Ashcourt Racing teams challenge.
Alongside competing on S1000RR BMW’s at TT 2019, the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix, six times International road race winner Johnston will also pilot in the Supersport encounters at the International events Yamaha’s proven, hugely successful YZF-R6 steed.
Beverley racers, James Westmoreland (Dickies British Supersport Championship), Jordan Rushby (Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship), and Peter Founds (rider) (Knutsford) / Adam Christie (passenger) (Beverley) competed in the final rounds of 2018 in their respective championships around the Brands Hatch GP Circuit in Kent.
At the first weekend in June, T Sport Racing attended the third round of the British Truck Racing Championship at the high-speed circuit in Thruxton near Andover.
On early Friday morning, the team was among the first ones to be all set for a great race weekend on UK´s fastest circuit. Due to noise restrictions, however, neither they nor anyone else were able to practice or test their set-up until Saturday morning.
Dominic Usher from Beverley rode to a strong 11th place in round eight of the National Superstock 1000 championship at Thruxton over the weekend to move into 11th place on 29 points in the overall rider standings.
