EHA Racing is delighted to have secured the support of Charles Hurst Motorcycles in Belfast, for the team’s return to the International North West 200 in May. The multiple dealership on Belfast’s Boucher Road will be majoring on their Yamaha marque in support of EHA Racing and rider Alastair Seeley – who will campaign an EHA liveried Yamaha YZF-R6 in both Supersport races on May 17 and 19.
Having the North West 200 record holder on EHA Racing Yamaha machinery is a great boost for both companies, and with ten of the Carrickfergus rider’s record breaking 21 wins coming via the Supersport class, everyone is quietly confident, he can add to that number this year.
Speaking of Charles Hurst’s support, EHA Racing team manager Gail Allingham said:“Coming home to compete at the International North West 200 is special for us as a team, especially with British championship being our ‘day job’ so to speak. And to be able to do that with the support of Charles Hurst Motorcycles and their Yamaha dealership is great.”
Gail added: “Having Alastair on an EHA Racing Yamaha has already generated widespread pre-event publicity for EHA Group and our associate sponsors. Charles Hurst Yamaha can now also reap those partnership rewards over the next twelve weeks or so. Looking ahead, all we ask for is a safe day’s racing, with plenty of sunshine and hopefully celebrations within the Charles Hurst Motorcycles supported EHA Racing camp.”
David White, Head of Business at Charles Hurst Motorcycles, said: “Charles Hurst Yamaha is delighted to be involved with EHA Racing for the 2018 NW200. The set-up that Edward and Gail Allingham have, will undoubtedly be one of the best in the North West 200 paddock, and with the team running Supersport Yamaha R6 bikes for 2018, it was a great time to get involved.”
David went on to say: “Alastair Seeley’s record at the North Coast event is very impressive and riding the new Yamaha YZF-R6, he will certainly start as one of the favourites. It’s great to be involved with a local team and a local rider.”
