The tenth fastest TT newcomer of the 2010’s, he’s another one to watch next year and don’t be surprised to see him mixing it with many an established high level event participant.

Alongside a third TT Races campaign, Jackson’s 2020 race plans also includes sampling selected Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough meetings.

Third in September’s Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup, he’s quickly developed into a top level exponent of England’s only closed roads course.

None of his aforementioned TT, Oliver’s Mount feats would have been possible without the support of a loyal band of sponsors which he would like to thank today.

They are as follows: B&C Express, Dunlop, Ohlins, CHC, Aria, Nix Bodyshop Lincoln, Signs Express Lincoln, Evotec Performance, Padgetts Autorama Kawasaki Batley, HMT Tyres.
