Isle of Man TT | Conor Cummins with Jackson Racing for Supersport Races

2014 Isle of Man TT | Cummins with Jackson Racing for Supersport Campaign2014 Isle of Man TT

Isle of Man road racer Conor Cummins has signed with Jackson Racing for his 2014 Supersport campaign. The Manxman will compete in the two 600 Races at the 2014 Isle of Man TT Races fueled by Monster Energy as well as the North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix. Solway Slate & Tile, W.A. Corless, CMS and Motul Oil are backing the team for their 2014 campaign.

Jackson Racing has been a continuous presence in motorcycling paddocks since the 1970’s when Alan Jackson Senior won three consecutive World Formula Two Championships between 1977 and 1979, also taking four victories at the Isle of Man TT during that period.

Sons Alan Junior and Andy continued the racing dynasty with Alan setting the Manx Grand Prix outright lap record, 122.208mph, in 2005 – a record that still stands today.

2014 Isle of Man TT | Cummins with Jackson Racing for Supersport CampaignCummins has the fastest ever “standing start” Mountain Course lap at 131.511mph, which he set in the 2010 Dainese Superbike TT, which is also the third fastest lap of all time. His four TT podiums include third place in last year’s bikesocial.co.uk Lightweight TT. He also has third placed finishes in the 2009 Supersport Race, his highest finish in the class, and the 2010 Superstock Race while his highest placed TT finish remains the runner up spot he took in the 2009 PokerStars Senior TT.

Alan Jackson commented: “Conor is a talented rider who has shown incredible determination to put himself back at the front of the field. He will be one of the frontrunners in every class he competes in and we are delighted to have him on board for the Supersport races where I think he can give a good account of himself.

“I’m really looking forward to representing Jackson Racing in the 2014 season,” said Conor Cummins. “What the Jackson family don’t know about road racing isn’t worth knowing. I’ve always enjoyed racing the 600’s and I’m confident that we can challenge for honors in the class.”
