Road Racer’s Adventures: Seeley Takes Supersport Sizzler At Bishopcourt

24 times North West 200 winner Alastair Seeley, was to emerge victorious in the opening Slemish Spring Water Supersport race at the Neil & Donny Robinson Memorial races but only after a thrilling battle with McAdoo Kawasaki’s Adam McLean and 19 times TT winner Michael Dunlop.

Evenly matched throughout, opening Superbike race victor Seeley, McLean, Dunlop all had a potent chance of race success once the 10th and final lap entered the horizon.

Ultimately it was Triangle course maestro Seeley who just, just had the edge on former Ulster GP Super Twins winner McLean, with only 0.149 separating them come the race conclusion.

Third placed Dunlop was only a further 0.21 behind McLean, following a typically determined, gritty all-in performance on his own squad’s MD Racing Yamaha.

2018 Duke Road Race Rankings Champion Derek McGee took fifth whilst added pure roads forces showing a swift turn of speed at Bishopcourt included Michael Browne (6th), Christian Elkin (7th) and Team ILR with Mark Coverdale backed Joe Loughlin (8th).
