Roads: 'Alastair Seeley - My NW200 wins' set for DVD release

Published: 05 January 2017

A documentary telling the story of how Alastair Seeley became the most successful man in the history of the North West 200 is set to be released on DVD.

Made by Northern Irish film maker, Colin James, ‘Alastair Seeley – My NW200 Wins’ will be out on February 1st and sold through the official North West 200 website.

The film tells the inside story behind the Carrickfergus rider’s record 17 victories he took at the iconic Triangle circuit on his way to overhauling a win record held by the late Robert Dunlop.

The 37-year-old made his debut at the North coast event in 2004 after a promising start to career on the short circuits both in Ireland and on the British championship scene. He first tood on the North West podium in 2007, before enjoying his first taste of victory a year later. 

A British champion in both the Superstock and Supersport classes and a regular competitor in the BSB series since 2009, the North West 200 is the only road race Seeley competes in each year.

While Seeley has a ride sorted for the North West, he is still awaiting a deal to race in the British Championship and has therefore not signed anything for the upcoming season.

“I have a deal for bikes sorted for the North West this year but nothing is signed yet,” he explained at a press viewing of the documentary on Wednesday.

“I still want to get a ride in the British Supersport or Superstock series and there are some offers out there but they would require a significant cash injection. But whatever happens there, I will definitely be at the North West 200 in May.

“I have had two trebles at the North West and I would like to get a third. And of course there’s Phillip McCallen’s record of five wins in a day that has stood since 1992. It would be great to equal that, but I definitely want to go after Phillip’s other record of 28 podium finishes. I have 27 so I think I can do that.”
