British Superbike: Alastair Seeley Races to a 2011 Brands Hatch Win

British Superbike: Team Suzuki Press Release

British Superbike: Alastair Seeley demonstrated the pedigree of Suzuki’s all-new GSX-R600 taking it to its debut victory in the British Supersport Championship at Brands Hatch in front of a packed Easter Monday audience.

Team Suzuki's Josh Brookes racing at the 2011 Brands Hatch British Superbike RaceThe former British Superstock Champion and current Superbike and Supersport lap record-holder at the International North West 200, picked himself up after yesterday’s disappointment when he crashed whilst challenging for the win, to lead home a high-speed freight-train over 26 pulsating laps.

Less than a second covered the top-five at the chequered flag, and despite yesterday’s DNF, the Ulsterman sits well-poised in fourth place, just 13 points behind the series leader.

Alastair Seeley:

“I never looked behind me in that second Supersport race and it’s a good job as I think I might have scared myself! I just watched my board today, kept my head down and stuck to the game plan. Ben tried to make a break for it but I was ready for him and when I eventually got to the front I just defended my line on that last lap and brought it home for the win. Next week we’ll get a chance to stretch the legs on the GSX-R600 at Oulton Park, but before that, I have a GSX-R ‘Owners Day’ here at Brands Hatch with Suzuki.”

Philip Neill – Team Manager:

“There are a number of positives to take away from this meeting, starting with Alastair Seeley. He was pure class in that race today, and it’s not the first time he’s pulled this team out of a hole: He completely out-smarted his rivals and the new GSX-R600 package was nothing short of perfect. He rode the textbook race and we knew he had a better tyre-choice than many of his rivals. He controlled the race from the front and it was the race of the day for the fans with five of them in it at the end.
