Firstly can we thank everyone who has helped F13K Cancer during the 2015/2016 seasons to raise almost £35,000 for Marie Curie Northern Ireland. 

It just goes to show that Road Racing and Motorsports fans are very generous and always dig deep to support their sport and the charities associated with it.  

In 2016 we had been given some much appreciated guidance from Marie Curie and their fundraising team in Belfast that has helped us reach out and attend more events during the 2016 season [NI Bike Fest and DUBSHED before the race season even starts].  F13K Cancer will be holding an Auction and a small event over the Ulster Grand Prix week, more details will follow in the coming months.  

“One of the worst feelings in the world is not being able to help people close to your heart,” said Fermanagh’s Lee Johnston. “For that reason alone I’m starting this charity, as the sad fact is – nearly everyone is close to someone with cancer.”

Giving credit to his peers and the worldwide pool of motorcycling fans, he added: “It’s a well know fact that racers and race fans are very generous when it comes to supporting charities, so I’m hoping everyone gets involved, by simply donating, or they can purchase a t-shirt or phone cover.”

The double North West 200 winner has initiated a no-holds-barred logo; but explaining the design, Lee believes there’s no need for a filter, or an apology, when fighting this dreaded disease.

“Some people might think the logo is rude or offensive, but when I think of cancer it’s the first thing I say, F13K CANCER, so I thought why not use this as our logo.”

Johnston has made the racing number #13 his own in recent seasons; so has decided to integrate the double digit into in his Marie Curie funding process, as he explained.

“The plan is to raise another ’13’ thousand pounds [£13,000.00] in 2017. So what I’ve organised throughout the 2017 season is to run a few events, auction top riders’ helmets and other interesting bits and pieces and sell our new branded t-shirts, with all proceeds [every last penny!] going to Marie Curie.

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise much needed funds for Marie Curie Belfast in 2015 and 2016Lee Johnston, Stephen Henderson, Grace Smyth and all the team at Marie Curie.

Our F13k Shop is now offline for Ordering.  We will be adding new items before the 2017 race season.

Latest News 

Lee Johnston will line up for Jackson Racing at the 2017 International Meetings, the team have said.

Lee will be riding Nicky Hayden’s 2016 World Superbike spec Honda CBR1000RR in both the Superbike and Senior TT races.

Fermanagh man Johnston said: “I want to be back at the front again, winning races and I think this is the bike that can help me to do that.”

He will also campaign Hondas in the Superstock and two Supersport Races.

He continued: “I had plenty of offers for this year and in the end it was all of the little things coming together that sealed the deal.

“I’m hungrier than ever and I just want to win more races.”

Johnston made his TT debut in 2012 and has a best lap of 130.851mph.

Johnston will also ride for the team at the North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix and Macau Grand Prix international road races.

“I’m really glad to have my team sorted for 2017 and to have finally announced it after a few months of speculation.

“I’m really happy with the new team, it’s pretty similar to my last team in terms of its size and the way of doing things, I get to have my input into things and I think it’s a good fit.

“The machinery I’ll be riding this year has me pretty excited; Ten Kate is preparing both my superbike and 600 in Holland and it’s great that they want to be involved with road racing.”


D.O.B – 10th March 1989
Hometown – Maguiresbridge, Northern Ireland
First International Win – 2014 International North West 200

26-year-old Lee Johnston is both an accomplished short circuit and pure road-racing competitor. The diminutive Ulsterman honed his skills with top-flight British championship competition, winning the Junior Superstock title in 2008. He then went on to become a regular front-runner in the British Supersport class, but is now regarded as one of International Road Racing’s rising young stars.

His Isle of Man TT debut in 2012 was well documented as a high profile newcomer, and the Maguiresbridge lad went on to lift the Monster Energy Privateers’ Championship at the 2013 event with East Coast Racing
The quirky young Ulsterman set a blistering lap of 126.358mph on his way to 11th place in the Senior TT in 2013 aboard his privateer Honda, and followed it up with a double podium, and a phenomenal 131mph lap at the Ulster Grand Prix in August of the same year.

In 2014 Johnston raised the bar once again with a double at the North West 200 in the Supertwin class; bravely picking himself up off the tarmac after getting taken out of a race winning position in the Supersport encounter.

He also tasted success for the first time at Scarborough during the 2014 Gold Cup event in the Supersport class, where he also took the same 600cc machine to third place in the feature Gold Cup event at Oliver’s Mount. His 2014 season ended at Macau with a fine fourth place for East Coast Racing and is now looking forward to 2015 with a full stable of machinery running under the East Coast Racing banner with additional support from Burdens and other associate partners.
