Mid & East Antrim Mayor welcomes Alastair Seeley to Mayor’s Parlour

1 Mins read

One of Mid and East Antrim Borough’s many sporting heroes, road-racing champion, Alastair Seeley has been officially recognised for his record-breaking achievements.

The 36-year-old from Carrickfergus broke the record for wins at the North West 200 road races earlier this year by achieving his 16th career win at the international meeting.

Record-breaker Seeley has won at least one event at the North-West for nine years in a row. He has also won at least one Supersport race in each of seven consecutive years from 2010 to 2016.

The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough, Councillor Audrey Wales MBE, invited the sportsman to a special reception in her Parlour in honour of the achievements.

“This reception was undertaken in recognition of Alastair’s remarkable motorbike racing achievements this year.

“He became the most successful rider at the North West 200 with his 16th win back in May, and effectively re-wrote the record books at the North West, beating the record set by the late Robert Dunlop a decade ago,” Cllr Wales added.

To top it off, the British Superbike series star went on to add a second Supersport victory and a new 600cc lap record on the same day.

“He is yet another great example of the top class sportsmen and women that Mid and East Antrim is proud to have representing the Borough,” the Mayor concluded.
