Seeley set for Supersport title battle with EHA Racing in 2019

EHA Racing will return to the Dickies British Supersport Championship in 2019, with former champion Alastair Seeley spearheading the team’s campaign on privately run Yamaha YZF-R6 machinery, prepared by CF Motorsport.

Seeley first made an appearance with the team at the North West 200 road race, before the Ulsterman joined the team for the final four rounds of the Dickies British Supersport Championship on EHA Racing machinery.

Seeley claimed four wins from six podiums finishes and his performance will see him return to the grid for next season to head up a one-bike effort to fight for the title.

Seeley said: “Riding for EHA Racing was the highlight of my season in 2018, and while I was signed to ride the North West 200, to be able to come in and show the strength of the package, and my own capabilities in British Supersport at the final four rounds, was very enjoyable.

“I’m over the moon to have secured a deal with EHA Racing for the 2019 British Supersport Championship, and I firmly believe we can go on and grab the team their first British championship title and my second in Supersport class. I clicked with the team and the package from the word go this season and had a lot of fun. Now that we have a full season to show our real strength I think we can kick-on and raise the bar to a whole new level.”

Team Manager Gail Allingham commented: “Alastair did a great job for us this season on the EHA Racing Supersport machine and when we eventually decided to continue in the class, he was the obvious choice. He fitted in well with the team, which is important for us, but his desire and commitment for success was very impressive and we can now look ahead with renewed optimism.”
