Johnston finally secures Superstock win

Lee Johnston was the winner of the final race at the 2015 North West 200.

The BMW rider who had been leading the first Superstock race on each of the three times it had been red flagged, finally crossed the line to win on Saturday evening.

He narrowly beat Alistair Seeley and denied the Tyco rider the opportunity to set a new record for wins around the Triangle Circuit after he equalled Robert Dunlop’s existing record earlier in the day. He also beat Ian Hutchinson who finished second in the Superbike race and had enjoyed good starts in the earlier attempts at the first Superstock race. Michael Dunlop was also a close fourth, with the Ballymoney man finally securing a good result after a number of disappointing retirements following his second place finish in Thursday’s Supersport race.

William Dunlop rounded up his North West 200 with a distant fifth place while team-mate Guy Martin was a third lap retirement. Martin Jessopp finished in sixth place ahead of James Hillier, Keith Amor, Conor Cummins and newcomer David Johnson. Along with Martin, other retirements were Darren Cooper, Michael Rutter, Bruce Anstey, Mark Goodings, and Dan Kruger.

The final race of the day – the North West 200 Superbike feature race – was called off by race organisers due to high winds.
