Alastair Seeley will ride for the Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki team at the 2020 fonaCAB & Nicholl Oils North West 200, it has been confirmed.
The record 24-time Triangle course winner has penned a deal with Pete Extance’s team to contest the international road race, which takes place from May 12-16, on Kawasaki machinery across the board.
Carrickfergus man Seeley (40) will be gunning for more victories at the North West as he bids to give the Kawasaki team further success after Glenn Irwin and James Hillier won the Superbike and Superstock events respectively on the ZX-10RR this year.
Seeley said: “I’m really pleased to be joining forces with the Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki team for the 2020 North West 200.
“I’ll be jumping on machinery that won races at this year’s event so I know Pete and his team do a good job. I’m also excited to be riding a Kawasaki Supersport bike again as the last time I did I took the record number of wins at the Triangle circuit.
“I’m looking forward to gelling with a new crew chief and team and getting plenty of track time on the bikes prior to the May event.”
Pete Extance, team owner, added: "I am really pleased to welcome Alastair Seeley to the Bournemouth Kawasaki squad for the 2020 International North West 200 with Quattro Plant as our title sponsor. The Quattro Plant squad was outstanding at the 2019 event with both Superbike and Superstock 1000 wins and for 2020 we want to continue as the team to beat - I see no better way of doing that than by having Alastair on board.
"The record-breaking 24-time winner of the North West 200 will be riding in all three classes for the team - Superbike, Supersport and Superstock - and we will be looking to get back to winning ways at this amazing event held on the 8.9-mile circuit at Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine.
"We hope to announce further plans soon as to who will partner Alastair at the North West 200 and spearhead our Isle of Man TT campaign. Big thanks to Quattro Plant and Kawasaki UK for their continued support next season."
