Broughton racer Gary Johnson rode to a fine eighth place in the F1 Classic TT at the Isle of Man Classic festival last week.

He started from seventh place in the time trial, like the main TT races, with riders setting off at 10-second intervals.

Despite completing just three laps in practice because of poor weather, Johnson remained in seventh place throughout the first three laps.

He lost a place on the final 37.73-mile lap of the mountain road course, but brought the Team Winfield Harris Yamaha home safely in eighth position in a time of 1hr 16min 12.112secs at an average speed of 118.832mph to earn a silver replica.
