Seeley to ride Suzuki Superbike at Oulton

Alastair Seeley will make his debut on a full Relentless Suzuki Superbike machine during the MCE British Superbike Championship finale at Oulton Park following his impressive outing at Silverstone.

New Superstock champion Seeley made his debut in the Superbike category around the Northamptonshire circuit a week ago, albeit riding a Suzuki specified to newly introduced 'Evo' regulations ahead of its full implementation in 2010.

However, Seeley will now get the chance to impress on the same Suzuki Superbike as piloted by Ian Lowry and Atsushi Watanabe this year at Oulton Park.

"The job is done with the Evo bike,” team owner Philip Neill said. “Alastair proved a point that the new rules will work. Let's park that now and see what he can do on the Superbike."

Seeley finished with a best result of tenth at Silverstone.

October 02, 2009 3:01 PM the time sheets a bit more...Seeley was at lest 20th through the speed traps doing similar speeds to superstock bikes...i am not involved with Tas Suzuki but i must say in their defence that the Evo bike they put out at Silverstone was a legal Evo spec bike and the times and race results were down to Alister Seeley riding ability..

it was an evo? - Unregistered
