Can anyone stop Seeley?

NI Blogs Admin | 18:22 UK time, Wednesday, 18 May 2011

The North West paddock had a more laidback air on Wednesday afternoon after the adrenaline and excitement of Tuesday night’s practice session. As fans and riders enjoyed the blue skies, we caught up with Carrickfergus man Alastair Seeley who appropriately was in relaxed mood and mingling with fans after putting down a marker as the early man to beat in the first practice.

Seeley topped the leaderboard in the Superbike and Superstock class and also finished second in the Supersport class behind Cameron Donald.

“Last night was all about the getting the most number of laps and mileage under my belt and getting used to the conditions before the weather closed in,” said Seeley.

The Wee Wizard, who already has four North West victories to his name, was delighted to get off to the perfect start by topping the Superbike practice session. Up next came the Supersport class and a closely fought duel with Cameron Donald, which the Carrickfergus rider relished.

“Cameron Donald just had the edge and got P1, but I felt good in the Supersport class too. It gave the fans what they wanted to see; some close racing action and excitement. That’s what the fans come for and that’s what the North West is all about,” said Seeley.

Seeley v Donald in a closely fought duel – could that be a sign of things to come on Saturday?

The Relentless TAS Suzuki pilot today had the quietly confident air of a man who knows what it takes to win at this circuit.

“I am always relaxed at the North West because I really enjoy this event and I have experience round here,” said Seeley.

With Seeley in this form, would you bet against him adding to his four North West victories?
