McGuinness and Cummins to tackle Superstock EWC and roads with Jackson Racing

1 of 3

John McGuinness and Conor Cummins will return to the Endurance World Championship in 2015 with Jackson Racing, as they team up with Dan Stewart for the superstock class with Jackson Racing.

They’ll also campaign at the Isle of Man TT and North West 200 for the family-run team, with McGuinness on their Honda CBR600 supersport machinery and Cummins on both 600cc and superstock machinery.

McGuinness, who parted ways with long-time sponsor Padgetts after a sponsor clash, will also run his own team. Returning to his roots, he’ll run his own superstock machine out of the back of his van, creating a new team of his own for the event.

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

Jackson Racing, meanwhile, have a wealth of experience within the paddock, dating back to the 1970s when Alan Jackson Senior won three consecutive World Formula Two Championships between 1977-79.

For the first of our two-part interview with John McGuinness, see today Wednesday 7th January’s MCN.
