DAVID Jackson got more than just a TT signature at Cadwell Park this weekend as he bagged the top No Limits Racing Pirelli Super Series – a sweet £1000.
Like a number of other road racers, thepeoplesbike.com’s Jackson had rocked up to his local circuit to help fulfil Mountain Course License requirements for his maiden Isle of Man TT campaign this year.
But even with the added roadies, the club’s fastest big bike riders didn’t have it all to themselves, as National Superstock regular Luke Hedger was also in attendance for some extra track time.
Unsurprisingly, Hedger stormed to pole by 1.389s while Jackson qualified second ahead of Daniel Wagstaff, with the big cash winner from Snetterton, Colin Parker, heading up the second row of the grid.
And although Jackson limited Hedger’s lead to just 0.052s after the first lap of race one, the former National champ soon pulled the pin and began stretching a lead over the chasing pack, crossing the line 13 seconds clear of Jackson, who held off Wagstaff to take the runner-up spot by less than a second.
But with Hedger not racing on Sunday after taking the Endurance spoils with KT Motorsport, it was Wagstaff who headed the front row of the grid with the second-fastest lap from Saturday.
He and Jackson stayed in close touch for the early part of race two, but once Jackson nabbed the lead at half-distance he was able to hold a comfortable one second gap all the way to the flag, beating Wagstaff and Global Robots Yamaha’s Parker to the win.
Despite getting the holeshot in race three and pulling out nearly half a second over Wagstaff on the first lap, Jackson wasn’t able to hold the lead as Wagstaff clawed back over a second on lap two, on his way to a 6.400s win, with Parker missing out on second once again by just 0.264s.
With the most points in class over the weekend, Jackson bagged both the road racing signatures he needed and the cash.
