Jamie Hacking “Hacker” as he is known, instills fear in the hearts of back markers across the US. Jamie is known for his aggressive on the edge riding and that gives him an edge when the opposition has to think twice about trying to pass him!
September 21, 2003 will be a day Jamie Hacking remembers for the rest of his life. That’s the day the British born South Carolinian earned his first AMA title by winning the 2003 AMA Pro Honda Oils U.S. Supersport Championship presented by Shoei. The factory Yamaha ace rode to a conservative fifth-place finish at Barber Motorsports Park to take the series win over teammate Damon Buckmaster by just 8 points. It was the closest finish in the Pro Honda Oils Supersport Championship in three years and marked Yamaha’s return to the Supersport championship for the first time in nine years.
Hacking got a chance at MotoGP filling in for an injured John Hopkins at Laguna Seca in 2008 finishing 11th.
After many fruitful seasons with Yamaha, Hacking returns to Superbike aboard the Kawasaki ZX-10R. The British-born rider’s desire to compete in the premier class was the impetus of his move from longtime employer Yamaha. Hacking is sort of an unknown quantity in Superbike, but enters the mix with the momentum of a spectacular 2006 campaign, where he claimed both the Superstock and Supersport titles for Yamaha. A double title will be a lot to ask for Kawasaki, but they’re putting Hacking on double duty, racing the all-new ZX-6R in Supersport. Hacking will run the number-2 plate on the little Zixxer and alongside Hayden, the Kawasaki duo will be a formidable team.
For 2009, Hacking piloted the ZX-6R in the Daytona SportBike class to fourth-place in the championship standings.
