Biography

Sean Jackson from Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Sean competed in the 1995 Manx Grand Prix Newcomers Lightweight race on the ex Mark Baldwin TZ Yamaha 250B. After a five year break from racing, he returned for the first time on a two stroke. He finished runner up in the 250 Newcomers, breaking the seven year old record held by Philip McCallen. He went on to the Lightweight race, finishing first newcomer home in fourth place. He rode a CBR900 Fireblade in the 95 Production TT to 31st despite serious handling problems. A hot favourite for the 96 MGP, Sean was backed by Padgetts on a new RS 250. Crashing heavily at Ballagarey in practice week, it was not to be. Sean sadly died in a road accident on his bike in Aysgarth, North Yorkshire in May 1997. He lived for bikes and loved the TT course. It was his dream to ride it and all he could think about.
