Broughton biker Gary Johnson made the long trip to Australia’s Phillip Island to contest the 2014 AMCN 21st International Island Classic races, where he rode to three fifth places.

Riding the Team Winfield 1982 1250 Harris Suzuki for the UK team, Gary completed his qualifying in eighth place to take the team to second place in the overall points.

And he was in good company, as his team mates included multi TT winner John McGuinness, pictured with Gary above, and former GP rider Jeremy McWilliams.

The final results were: 1 Australia 1161, 2 UK 916, 3 New Zealand 553, 4 USA 391.
