Honda Racing’s David Johnson is looking forward to being reunited with his CBR machinery next week, as the Aussie sets his sights on the fonaCAB Ulster GP, with track action getting underway on Wednesday 7 August.

It’s been a solid season so far for ‘Davo’ with the Honda roads team, where at this year’s Isle of Man TT races he scored his first-ever TT podium in the Superstock race, placing the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 third on the podium.

Johnson will take part in the Superbike and Superstock races aboard the Fireblade SP2, as well as the Supersport class with the CBR600RR. The Ulster GP holds good memories for Johnson, who last year finished third in the opening Superbike race.

Davo’s teammate Ian Hutchinson will not take part in the races as he recovers from recent surgery, where he had a plate removed from his leg.

I’m very happy to be racing at the fonaCAB Ulster GP with Honda Racing. After a decent TT I actually can’t wait to get back on my bikes! I’ve been chilling in Adelaide Australia since the TT and also riding out here at my local circuit so I am ready to race. I always look forward to the Ulster. I love the circuit and the people, so bring it on!

We’ve had a bit of a break since the TT and Davo has been back home in Australia so he’s arriving to the Ulster relaxed and fresh. He had such a good TT getting on the podium in the Superstock race, and with his podium at the Ulster last year, I think we can have some success next week. It’s a shame that Ian won’t be with us for the races, but I know he was keen to have his surgery as soon as possible in order to start his recovery and work back to where he was. I wish him all the best in his recovery.
