Double TT race winner Gary Johnson will run his own team at this year's event in the Isle of Man.

The Lincolnshire rider will run the all-new GSX-R Suzuki in the Superbike, Senior and Superstock races and Triumphs in the two Supersport races.

He said: "I'm feeling as strong as I've felt over the last few years and although it's a massive undertaking to run my own team, I'm really focused."

The 36-year-old's last victory came at the 2014 event.

He added: "I'm determined to make my mark this year. I've got a great bunch of lads supporting me and I'm looking forward to giving it a good go this year."

Johnson, who made his debut in 2007, set his quickest ever lap in 2016 at 130.945mph in the Senior race.
