Disappointed Alastair Seeley leaves Snetterton empty-handed

'It's been a busy couple of weeks with the North West 200 and now Snetterton so I'm off on holiday to recharge the batteries' - Alastair Seeley
Alastair Seeley has vowed to 'recharge his batteries' after a trying weekend in the fourth round of the MCE British Superbike Championship at Snetterton.

Seeley left the Norfolk venue empty-handed after twice finishing in 16th position and suffering a huge crash in practice on Friday that saw his Tyco Suzuki explode into a fireball.

His Northern Ireland-based team had to rebuild the bike overnight, but Seeley remained out of luck and failed to score any points on the GSX-R1000.

In race one he dropped back to 27th position after taking avoiding action following an incident on lap one, gradually fighting his way through to 16th by the flag.

Seeley started from row six ion race two and battled his way into the points at the half-way point, but tyre fade slowed his progress and he crossed the line in 16th position again.

“I got punted off in the first race and started to pick a few off but struggled a bit with a gear selection problem in the closing laps,” he said.

“In the second race I found a good rhythm and again started to make up places, but was having grip issues front and rear and dropped back out of the points.

“It's been a busy couple of weeks with the North West 200 and now Snetterton so I'm off on holiday to recharge the batteries for Knockhill.”
