Former British 600 Supersport Champion, and Multi North West 200 winner, Carrickfergus rider Alistair Seeley returns to the Sunflower Trophy races .
Seeley who last rode at the Sunflower Trophy Races in 2017 in the Superbike class on board the IFS Yamaha, will continue his association with IFS, when he rides the 600 IFS/YRP Yamaha in both the 600 and Sunflower Trophy races.
Now in his 19th season of racing , The diminutive Carrickfergus rider, who has amassed a total of 25 North West 200 wins along with 600 cc British Championships, is known as someone who never fails to give it his best.
However, due to recent wrist injury, received at Oulton Park, Seeley admits, it will be an uphill struggle to be on the pace.
“ Unfortunately, due to my recent wrist injury, I shall probably be somewhat limited in what I can achieve this weekend, But as in the past, I aim to give my best for both my sponsors and the fans who come to watch.”
Along with Seeley, The Sunflower Trophy races has attracted quite a number of riders from the British Championships, including Korie McGreevey, who will no doubt receive a Heroes welcome, following his success last Sunday at Brands Hatch when he unexpectedly clinched the British 600 superstock championship.
Add in , Harry Truelove (McAMNS Yamaha) and Richard Kerr ( Campbell Motorsport Triumph) along with fellow BSB campaigners, The G&S Race teamsters Kevin Keys and TJ Toms, Sam Laffins, Simon Reid, Ross Patterson, Jordan McCord and road racer Mike Browne, making the trip from Cork.
One rider who could upset the form book is Aghadoweys Eunan McGlinchy, on board the 600 Kawasaki as ridden by Adam McLean, Eunan has the ability to mix with the best.
