Seeley leading from the front

Published 13/04/2009

Alistair Seeley put himself in pole position for today’s first round of the British superstock championship at Brands Hatch.

Seeley who missed Saturday's meeting at Bishopscourt because of the British title said: "I hope this a good start for me. I have been waiting all winter for the superstock series and now I am hopeful of giving it a real go.

"I am still feeling on a high after my five wins in the match series at Donnington Park in March and I hope that I am in the same sort of form."

Meanwhile, at Bishopscourt on Saturday the man who stole the show was Scots rider Keith Amor who knocked everyone for six when he included the Enkalon Trophy in his large hall.

Amor was at his best and over the meeting which began on Good Friday, he knocked out wins in the two superbike races as well as the two super sport.

Then on Saturday he followed up with wins in the superbike and supersport as well as the Enkalon Trophy.

His only defeat was in the second supersport race where he was beaten by Mark Lunney in a race which set the place alight.

Amor said "I'll be back again at Kirkistown on Monday and I hope to go through the card."

Apart from Amor and Lunney, there was more action from Michael Dunlop who was at his best in the 125cc races. Dunlop posted wins and showed that he is in sparkling form.

As far as the big race was concerned Amor led from the start to finish to beat Gary Johnson and David Haire with fourth place going to Ryan Farquhar who will be meeting Amor at the Cookstown 100 at the end of the month. Last year Amor won the supersport class at the meeting.

After Cookstown, Amor will be going to Tandragee and then all roads lead to the North West 200.
