EHA Racing has decided to step in and support Alastair Seeley this weekend at Silverstone, where the former double British Champion and North West 200 record holder, will ride one of the team’s CF Motorsport prepared Yamaha YZF-R6 British Supersport Championship machines.
Seeley was a double International North West 200 winner aboard EHA Racing Supersport machinery back in May, so to step in and support the Carrickfergus ace was not a tough decision, as team manager Gail Allingham explained.
“We really enjoyed working with Alastair at the North West 200 and when we heard he had been left on the sidelines this weekend, we worked hard to try and sort something for him,” she said.
“It’s a bit of an eleventh-hour decision, but we have every confidence that he will again slot seamlessly into the EHA Racing set-up alongside David [Allingham] on the Supersport side of the garage at Silverstone.”
Seeley, who had made the journey to Silverstone, not knowing that he would be competing, added: “It’s been the most positive phone call I’ve had this week. To be honest it’s the one ride I would have picked, had there been a choice, as I really enjoyed riding the EHA Racing Yamaha back in May – at both the North West 200 and also in testing with David and Ross the following week.
“It’s a competitive package and despite only agreeing the deal this afternoon [Thursday], I’m confident we can tweak the set-up to suit me, in the knowledge that we can be racing at the sharp end on Saturday and Sunday. Thanks to EHA Racing for working hard to make this happen and to David on my side of the fence for screwing it all together. I’m really looking forward to it.”
