MOTORCYCLE racer Daley Mathison has signed a deal to compete with one of the biggest names in road racing next year – Jackson Racing.

Following a 13th place finish in this year’s blue riband Isle of Man TT race and a 130mph lap at the Ulster Grand Prix, the Stockton native feels the new signing will allow him to challenge for race wins.

“Jackson Racing is that next step for me – it’s what it’s going to take to be on the podium at international events,” he said.

Mathison joins Alan Jackson’s squad which has helped progress some of today’s top riders, including Dan Kneen, James Hillier and John McGuinness.
