Barry Sheene Classic: Opening 600 race win for Johnston

In News, Oliver's Mount, Roads

LEE Johnston powered to victory in the Barry Sheene Classic’s first Modern 600cc race at Oliver’s Mount after leading Mike Norbury from lights-to-flag.

The Ashcourt Racing rider controlled the action from start to finish and clocked the fastest lap of the weekend’s first race to cross the line with over two seconds to spare.

Norbury had started on pole after setting the quickest lap of this morning’s qualifying aboard his Spada-backed Honda, but Johnston got the jump into Mere Hairpin and after stretching a lead of some three seconds, was never headed en route to the chequered flag.

Back in a lone third, VRS Racing’s Brad Vicars crossed the line third some 16sec behind Norbury with Kramer-mounted Joey Thompson and Stephen Parsons rounding out the top five.
