East Coast Racing to take sabbatical

Business and personal reasons given

East Coast Racing is to take a break from road racing.

After seven years of involvement, owner Phil Reed will cease to run the privateer team due to business and personal reasons.

Phil will continue to support current rider Lee Johnston on a personal level next season wherever he decides his future lies.

East Coast Racing has run a number of riders over the time with success for Gary Johnson at the T.T. in 2011 and more recently with Lee at the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix.
