Another fantastic result for the Ace Cafe T3 Racing team on the Isle of Man as David Johnson finishes 13th (of 46 finishers), picking up another silver replica, as well as being the fastest Triumph on track. He completed the course in 01:15:21.931 with an average speed of 120.150mph, almost 26 seconds faster than race 1.
DJ put in a fantastic performance on his Metzeler shod Daytona 675 Ace Cafe Racer in the second and final Monster Energy Supersport race at the Isle of Man TT 2013. It was a close finish, DJ was running 12th before narrowly losing out to Jamie Hamilton who went three seconds faster on the last lap.
Despite still running a stock engine, DJ was 1:35 minutes ahead of the next closest Triumph of Russ Mountford.
On his first lap, the Australian rider recorded 153mph as he came down the start-finish straight. The bike performed well and with the extra capacity added to the fuel tank made it across the finish line with enough spare for DJ to do a burnout outside the Ace Cafe T3 Racing hospitality suite.
Team manager Dave Harris commented: "It's a shame we missed out on 12th place, it looked like we would get it but Hamilton got us by just 3 seconds.
"It's amazing that he's basically riding a Triumph Triple Challenge bike, the only real difference is the suspension! I daren't tell him that though because he might not have done what he did if he knew!"
Team principal Tony Scott is thrilled with how the fortnight has turned out and said:
"Top Triumph and two silver replicas at our debut IOM TT, are we proud!"
Mark Wilsmore MD Ace Cafe London said:
"We are thrilled with the result, particularly as it's a first for all concerned".
The Ace Cafe T3 Racing Team will now begin preparing for their next challenge - Knockhill. The team will be heading to the Scottish circuit with their Motorpoint British Supersport rider Rob Guiver for Round 4 on the 14th - 16th June.
Team Hospitality is available for all 6 remaining Triumph Triple Challenge Rounds at BSB 2013.
Go race and taste the Ace!
