15 times winner around the Triangle Alastair Seeley leads Lee Hardy Racing’s challenge, at the 2016 North West 200.
Bidding to become the most successful rider in history at the iconic meeting, Alastair is all set to pilot top spec S1000RR BMW’s in the superbike and superstock races.
Since 2009 he has been the dominant force at the North West 200, securing feature superbike victories in 2010 and 2012.

In 2015 the highly decorated rider enjoyed a top class weeks action on the coast roads, sealing back to back supersport wins and opening superbike race victory, when competing for Tyco BMW.
Having already tasted international roads success with Peter Hickman at the Ulster Grand Prix and Macau Grand Prix, Lee Hardy Racing are confident that Alastair can provide the team with it’s first North West 200 success.
Competition will be as strong as ever at the opening international road race meet of 2016.
GB Moto Racing’s Peter Hickman competing on the all new ZX10R Kawasaki, 11 time TT winner Ian Hutchinson are tipped by many to be the ones to beat in the superbike races.
Alastair Seeley though will still be as formidable as ever, as he embarks on a new challenge with Lee Hardy Racing.
