Having secured backing from the Ashcourt Group - a Construction, Civil Engineering & Housing supplier - Johnston has the use of a BMW S1000RR for the Superbike and Superstock races and a Yamaha YZF-R6 for the Supersport events, all decorated in the Ashcourt Racing Team colours.

The Northern Irelander, based out of Hull on Yorkshire's East coast, has taken three podium finishes at the Isle of Man TT from 33 starts, making his first appearance in 2012. 

Lee's long-time sponsors East Coast Construction and Burdens remain on board for TT 2019.
