Gall runs an unusual MC21/MC28 hybrid in Hawaii's
HRRA. This is his first season on an NSR after competing
last year (his first ever season) on a Yamaha FZR600.
His first ever bike was a CR60 motocrosser, and takes
his inspiration from the legendary "King"
Kenny Roberts. Very serious about his racing, Johnny
has a strict fitness regime including 2 jogging sessions
per day, cardio and weight training, and some intensive
mental training on GP Racer on the Playstation!!
ambition is to ride in, and win, at World Championship
MC21 is a rather unique bike. It has an MC28 motor
fitted and a special wiring harness was made by Matt
Patterson of TYGA Performance. Fitted with both PGM-III
and PGM-IV ECUs, the PGM-III controls the RC Valve
timing, while the PGM-IV c/w HRC card, controls the
ignition map. The barrels are ported and polished
and TYGA Performance SS pipes fitted. Some minor jetting
changes complete the package.
first taste of racing was in the Novice category on
a 1991 Yamaha FZR600 in April '02. Even with a stock
motor and badly worn/warped brake discs, he was still
able to out-run the more popular GSX-Rs, R6s, and
CBR F4s of his fellow competitors.
the end of the season, Johnny swapped to the 1993
MC21SP and was instantly successful with two podium
finishes; a 2nd (runner up to an R6,) and then a 1st.
saw the first race of the new season, and a 1st place
in the Novice class again saw Johnny beating off various
larger capacity 4-strokes! He was consequently 'bumped'
up from Novice to Expert.
2nd was his first Expert
class race, and once again he found himself leading
the entire field until the last lap when he crashed.
After recovering the bike, Johnny still went on to
finish 2nd. Unfortunately, due to HRRA rules stating
that bikes must be inspected after any crash before
resuming racing, he was stripped of the 2nd place
and demoted to last. Race 2 was sat out while repairs
to a bent steering damper were carried out. Everything
was fit for race 3 where he promptly went out and
again secured yet another 1st place!!
6th is Johnny's next race weekend...
