Gearlink Kawasaki rider Alastair Seeley said he was 'annoyed' after the British Supersport title contender incurred a ten-second time penalty at Silverstone.

Seeley crossed the line in third place in race two behind Luke Mossey and Billy McConnell, a result that cut Mar-Train Racing rider Stuart Easton's championship advantage to six points.

The 34-year-old had taken full advantage when Scottish star Easton slid out of contention on the opening lap of Saturday's opening race, going on to claim all 25 points with a crucial victory to pile on the pressure in the title race.

However, Seeley collided with Samsung Honda's Jason O'Halloran in race two, with the Australian rider crashing out as a result.

He was later handed a ten-second penalty following the incident, dropping seven places on the results sheets to tenth position and is now 19 points behind Easton ahead of the final round.

"It was another good weekend and it was the first time since my crash at Cadwell that I actually felt good on the bike again," said Seeley.

"I was able to move it around to where I needed to. It was great to be back on the top step of the podium on Saturday and close in the lead in the championship.

"The second race was a little messy and there was some contact between all riders, it was a hard race and we all wanted to win," he added.

"I ended up with third but I was knocked back to 10th after a time penalty incurred for the O'Halloran incident.

"I'm a bit annoyed by the outcome of it as I'd worked really hard to get myself in a good position in the race and also the championship, but I will make sure that I keep fighting to the end."
