It’s still to be announced as to the machinery he will piloting in superstock and superbike races. It’s widely anticipated though that he will be joining forces with Lee Hardy Racing competing on high spec S1000RR BMW’s.

A three time winner of the North West 200 feature superbike race, Alastair Seeley has perhaps over the years not been given the credit he deserves for his momentous feats at the meeting which first began in 1929.

This year could see him become the most successful competitor in history around the Triangle. Could this stellar achievement be recorded in one of the supersport races? good possibility it could.
