Alastair Seeley - King of the NW200

Alastair Seeley - King of the NW200











Saturday 1 July – Thursday 31 August 2017

This exhibition celebrated Seeley's remarkable career on both the roads and short circuits and visitors had the unique opportunity to see bikes, trophies and other exciting racing treasures from the personal collection of the "Wee Wizard". In 2016, Alastair Seeley became the most successful rider at the international North West 200 motorcycle races when he won his 17th victory on the famous Triangle circuit. It is an achievement that elevated the Carrickfergus rider into road racing royalty and proved, beyond doubt, his unique talent and ability.
