Johnson replaces namesake for Team York Suzuki

Injured Aussie Johnson replaced

Gary Johnson is set to compete in the four-lap Superbike Classic TT race later this month after signing for Team York Suzuki.

He'll ride an XR-69 1100cc Suzuki after being drafted in to replace injured Australian namesake David.

Gary has been an ever-present at the Classic TT since its inception three years ago and finished eighth in 2015.

He says he's hoping to challenge for a podium finish this year.
