The peren­nial pri­va­teer, Bob Jack­son was al­ways on a shoe­string bud­get and punched far above his weight at the TT. He raced on the Is­land be­tween 1975 (in the Manx Grand Prix) and 1998, when he was beaten by Ian Simp­son on the fac­tory Honda RC45 in the Se­nior TT by just 3.4 sec­onds. It was as close as the Cum­brian would get.

Jack­son re­fu­els at the 1997 Se­nior TT
