Northern Ireland's Alastair Seeley placed 10th in the 2015 Crash.net
Road Racer of the Year poll after another stellar performance at the North West 200 in May.
The former British Superstock 1000 and Supersport champion restricts his road racing exploits solely to the famous international meeting on the north coast of Ireland and sealed his place in the history of the 86-year-old event after matching Ulster legend Robert Dunlop's all-time record of 15 victories around the famous 8.9-mile seaside course.
Seeley began the week in style as he won the first Supersport race on the Thursday of practice week to draw level with Joey Dunlop and Michael Rutter on the all-time winners' list, who claimed 13 wins apiece.
The 36-year-old claimed the spoils in the sole Superbike race on the Tyco BMW after beating Ian Hutchinson and Bruce Anstey and completed a brilliant hat-trick by taking the honours in the second Supersport race following a dramatic battle with newcomer Glenn Irwin and Lee Johnston.
Seeley was denied the chance of surpassing Robert Dunlop's record haul when the organisers cancelled the feature Superbike race, citing high winds.
However, the Carrick man will return in 2016 as a red-hot favourite to become the most successful North West 200 rider ever, with Seeley requiring one more victory to take over the mantle from Dunlop.
The 'Wee Wizard' has parted company from Northern Ireland's TAS Racing team but looks set to be BMW-mounted in 2016, when Seeley is expected to join Lee Hardy's RAF Reserves team to compete in the MCE British Superbike Championship plus the North West 200.
