6th November, 2019: LEE JOHNSTON | Return of the Privateer
The third video in our series. This week we catch up with Lee Johnston whilst he was testing at Croft. Rooted in Northern Ireland, arguably the heartland of road racing, growing up with the Dunlop family, it’s no mystery as to why Lee Johnston knew early on that he wanted to race motorcycles professionally, to the dismay of his schoolteachers.
Winning his first TT this year, growing into fatherhood, dealing with the tragic death of his close friend William Dunlop, Lee is a remarkable racer and personality, at the top of his game. This short video captures all this and more in an intimate, down to earth insight into the man.

In our week two video, we talked to Guy Martin what makes him tick, what makes him keep pushing the boundaries and what he really thinks about racing at the Isle of Man TT.
In our week one video, we talked to John McGuinness about how he came to the world of motorbike racing, and how his father putting him in a hedge on the Isle of Man led to the making of a legend.
