Gerry Johnson RBRacing

Words by Gerry Johnson Well, the adventure is finally over………. Three years of fantastic sport, that couldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the generosity of Labman Automation. The dream started to hatch (over a few beers probably) during the winter of 2012 – 2013 when son Richy started to get itchy feet with regards to going Motorcycle Road Racing …

Words by Gerry Johnson. As the saying goes, “all good things must come to an end,” and that’s just what happened at the weekend, with son Richy hanging up his race leathers after 3 years of very successful and extremely enjoyable racing with myself in the RBRacing/Labman Motorcycle Race Team.

“Thunder at the Rock” Rockingham International 27th/28th July

Gerry Johnson Just For Fun, RBRacing

A combination of circumstances meant that only Gerry could enter this meeting on behalf of Team RBRacing/Labman.
