The late Robert Dunlop previously held the record of 15 wins around the 7.8 mile triangular circuit, but last nights success gives Seeley the record as he notched up his 16th win, a massive achievement. The Northern Irish rider took his record breaking win on the Gearlink Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, a bike that has proven success at this circuit. Seeley has enjoyed previous success on the Gearlink prepared machine both at the NW200, but also in the British Supersport Championship, so it was fitting that he achieved the record breaking win on the Kawasaki machine.
Racing Co-ordinator for Kawasaki Motors UK, Ross Burridge was thrilled with the result - "Alastair has proved over the years that he is a force to be reckoned with at the Northwest, and going into last nights race you would have been a brave man to bet against him. But he still had a tough race, and rode excellently and I am over the moon for both him and the team. They thoroughly deserve it".
Seeley will race the second Supersport race on Saturday again on board the Gearlink Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.
