Manxman Conor Cummins will ride a Honda CBR600 for Jackson Racing in 2014, as he adds the supersport bike to his factory Honda Fireblade and RAF Reserves Superstock at the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix.

The Jackson name is well known in the TT paddock, with Alan Jackson Senior winning three consecutive World Formula Two Championships between 1977 and 1979, as well as taking four victories at the Isle of Man 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 honours in the class."
