PRESTON and District double champ Andy Jackson is set for a busy season of road racing after joining the Falcon Road Race Team.
And with eyes firmly fixed on his Manx Grand Prix debut, he hopes to make the most of the squad’s machinery.
Jackson stormed the Three Sisters Circuit this season, taking his third PDMCC 500cc title on the trot and bagging the club’s 50cc crown to boot.
Now, he’ll be at the helm of both a modern and a classic bike for the Falcon team, and he feels he’s got the best machinery at his disposal.
“Falcon sponsored me in 2018 and I rode their Moto3 for the first time at the end of the season at Anglesey,” he told UK Clubsport. “And that led to us working out a full-time ride for this year.
“We’re planning on racing at the Irish road races, the Manx and Aberdare. I’ve been accepted onto the newcomers weekend for the Manx as well, so subject to my entries being accepted that will be my main goal for the season.
“I’m also happy to be teammate to Tom Snow, who will be back riding the Falcon Honda Moto 3 at the Manx after getting second in the 2018 Ultra Lightweight race.
“I have to give a big thanks to Phil, Colin and Carol Barber for the opportunity. I’m really looking forward to racing on the roads this year and showing my potential on some competitive bikes with an experienced team behind me.
