North West 200: Seeley takes Supersport pole after red-flagged second qualifying

In News, North West 200, Roads

NORTH West 200 king Alastair Seeley secured Supersport pole position with his Tuesday time after beating Lee Johnston to the punch by just 0.005sec.

But today’s final middleweight qualifying session was hit with at least two red flags, one just a few minutes into the session and the second less than two minutes before the final qualifying was due to finish.

The first was for an incident on the approach to Ballysally Roundabout, resulting in the rider being transferred to hospital, while the second was due to an incident at Magheraboy Chicane – but the rider was said to be on his feet.

EHA Yamaha rider Seeley had set the quickest 600 time of the week on Tuesday with a 4:37.073, which stood despite the efforts of Ashcourt Racing’s Johnston who clocked a 4:37.078 in this afternoon’s final qualifying.

Dean Harrison clocked a 4:38.177 today to snatch the final spot on the front row for today’s first Supersport scrap, while James Hillier, Peter Hickman and Michael Dunlop will complete the second row.
