Ulster SBK: Seeley gunning for championship double this weekend

In News, Ulster SBK

ALASTAIR Seeley is set to be crowned both Ulster SBK Superbike and Supersport champion at Bishopscourt at tomorrow’s trophy races.

The Wee Wizard, who remains unbeaten on his IFS Logistics Yamaha R1 since his return to racing on home soil this season, has a commanding 81-point lead over nearest rival Ali Kirk with two rounds remaining.

This weekend’s outing at Bishopscourt, a merger of both the Enkalon Trophy and the IFS David Wood Trophy Races, marks the championship’s penultimate round for 2021 and the former British Supersport champ remains a firm favourite for the big bike honours.

Seeley, who has also been clearing up in the USBK Supersport class this season, is poised to contest the David Wood memorial races as well – a prize given to the 600cc rider who accummulates the most points over the two races.

And with three-time winner Jason Lynn making the move to big bikes, it could be Seeley’s for the taking aboard the Life Pass R6. He’s won all but two of the club’s Supersport races this season and with a 57-point lead in the tables, he could have that title in the bag by the end of tomorrow.

Action at the County Down circuit is set to kick off at 9am tomorrow with a full programme of 16 races in all the usual classes as well as the two feature trophy battles.
