Dan Kneen will join Josh Brookes at Jackson Racing for the two Monster Energy Isle of Man TT Supersport races.
The Jackson outfit was left seeking two last minute replacement riders after John McGuinness’ North West crash ruled him out of the two weekend event and then Lee Johnston walked from the team with just days to go before the TT.
While the squad are yet to find a replacement for their Ten Kate-prepared WSB-spec Superbike, team boss Alan Jackson is thrilled to have returned to a full strength line-up in the 600 category.
“As a team, we were all gutted that John had his accident at the North West 200 and we’re all hoping he makes a full and speedy recovery,” he said. “Having him ride for us has been a privilege and out of respect for John, it was only after speaking to both him and Becky that we decided to go ahead and field a replacement. But to have someone of the calibre of Josh now riding for us is another terrific coup for the team.”
“We’re delighted to have him on board and it's a real bonus to bring Dan in as well. They will both be getting our full support during TT2017. The TT is what our year is geared towards and we’ve invested a lot of time, effort and money into this year’s campaign both on and off the track. We’ve got a good infrastructure and good machinery and the whole team is looking forward to working with a great pair of riders.”
