Jackson to make TT debut with People’s Bike
Popular fan backed ‘The People’s Bike’ team will be competing for their tenth consecutive year at the Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy in 2018, with newcomer David Jackson set to contest the RST Superbike, RL360 Quantum Superstock and Pokerstars Senior TT Races on board a BMW S1000RR.
The Lincolnshire rider will make his Mountain Course debut after impressing at both the Ulster Grand Prix and Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough road races during the last two seasons. His Ulster Grand Prix debut in 2016 saw him lap in excess of 125mph on his way to victory in the Challenge Race whilst he also took a strong 16th in the Superstock encounter.
“The People’s Bike is definitely the best team for me to make my debut with. They’ve got great experience of working with newcomers and their knowledge, combined with the sessions that I’ve already begun with the riders liaison officers Richard (Quayle) and John (Barton) will mean that I’ll have the best possible preparation for riding at the TT,” said Jackson.
