Jackson Racing confirm Brookes, Kneen lineup

Jackson Racing have confirmed their lineup for this year's TT just a day before the first practice of the fortnight.

The team had originally announced John McGuinness and Lee Johnston would compete on their machines this year, but McGuinness was ruled out with injury, while Johnston parted company with the team earlier this week.

As a result, former British Superbike champion Josh Brookes and Manxman Dan Kneen have signed for the team to compete in the Supersport class.

Brookes previously raced in the Supersport World Championship, finishing third in 2008, while Kneen has previously finished fifth in the 600cc event at the TT.
