Jackson Racing to back McGuinness and Cummins on roads and endurance

07th January 2015
Leading road racing team Jackson Racing will be undertaking a Honda-supported campaign for the Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy, the other international road races and World Endurance Championship in 2015. Twenty-one time TT race winner John McGuinness and Manxman Conor Cummins will spearhead their attack on Honda CBR1000RR SP and Honda CBR600RR machinery.

McGuinness joins the team for the first time and will be armed with a CBR600RR Honda for the Monster Energy Supersport races at the Isle of Man TT and North West 200 events joining Cummins, who had a strong debut campaign with the Preston based outfit in 2014.

Cummins will also enjoy the backing of the squad in the RL360 Superstock race for the first time where he’ll line up on the formidable CBR1000RR SP. The 28-year old will also contest the Supersport and Superstock races at the Ulster Grand Prix, the third of the ‘big three’ International road races.

Run by brothers Alan jnr and Andy, the team will make their debut in the Endurance World Championship, contesting the Superstock class. Again using the Honda CBR1000RR SP, Honda-contracted riders McGuinness and Cummins will be joined by a third rider Dan Stewart, the 2012 TT Privateer’s Champion.

Both McGuinness and Cummins have prior experience in the EWC with 42-year old McGuinness riding for Honda TT Legends from 2011 to 2013, scoring a best position of fourth overall, while 28-year old Cummins has previously competed in both the Le Mans and Bol d’Or 24 Hour races.

Jackson Racing, meanwhile, has a wealth of experience within the motorcycling paddocks, dating back to the 1970s when Alan Jackson senior won three consecutive World Formula Two Championships between 1977-79, also taking three victories at the Isle of Man TT during that period.

Sons Alan junior and Andy continued the dynasty, Alan setting the outright lap record at the Manx Grand Prix in 2005 with a speed of 122.208mph, a record that still stands today. The team is no stranger to success having contested World and British Championships and they have supported the careers of many road racing stars including Ian Lougher, James Hillier, Steve Mercer and American Mark Miller.

Jackson Racing are currently seeking new sponsors to come on board for their exciting 2015 venture and can be contacted on 07947 660928 or aljacko122@yahoo.co.uk to discuss opportunities.
