Hugely looking forward to working again with Triangle wizard Alastair Seeley, EHA Racing are quietly ultra confident of been in prime position again for Supersport success at next years North West 200.
Running for the first time this year event record holder Seeley, the now 24 times NW200 victor proved unbeatable in last May’s Supersport races, along the way setting within the second middleweight class encounter a blistering new class lap record of 4 minutes 33.864 seconds.
Seeley who will pilot next May on the fabled Triangle course, CF Motorsport prepared YZF R6 Yamaha machinery, plus quite possibly Tyco BMW machines in the Superstock, Superbike classes candidly stated today about his second North West quest with the highly rated EHA team:
“I bonded well with the team and the bike last year and am delighted to have a deal sorted for the British championship which means I should hit the ground running coming to the North West.
We will have the first two British rounds at Silverstone and Oulton under our belts by May and should be up to speed and have the bike well sorted.
I am training twice a day, six days a week, to make sure I am as fit and sharp as I can be. I always think it is important if you can come to the North West carrying confidence from the British championship.
I am going for the British title next season and if we can come to Portrush with a couple of podiums or wins under our belt, it will be a big boost.”

EHA Racing Team Manager Edward Allingham added:
“We would love to be able to give Alastair his 25th win at the NW200. It was mega for a small team like ours to win two races this year against all the top road race teams at such a prestigious event as the North West.
That brought a lot of interest and local support for the team and our business and we would love to come back and repeat what we achieved in 2018.”
