Seeley flies to the top of the times in session two

Wednesday, June 15 2016

Alastair Seeley set the pace in the second session of the day at the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship test at Snetterton, firing the RAF Reserves BMW ahead of Michael Laverty in the closing stages.

Luke Mossey started the session by setting the benchmarks as the times tumbled in the second on track outing with the Quattro Plant Teccare Kawasaki rider leading Richard Cooper on the Buildbase BMW, until the Oulton Park race winner tipped off at Murrays unhurt.

Laverty had climbed to second behind Mossey before the Tyco BMW rider hit the top spot with 20 minutes remaining on the clock. However Seeley saved his best for last in the session to displace him at the top in the final moments.

Mossey held on to third from Tommy Bridewell, who had topped the opening session of the day, as the Bennetts Suzuki rider held off Leon Haslam who set the fifth fastest time on his first appearance on the 300 circuit.

Honda Racing's Jason O'Halloran was sixth fastest to split the JG Speedfit Kawasakis with James Ellison moving ahead of Christian Iddon on the second of the Tyco BMWs. John Hopkins held ninth place with Cooper still holding a top ten position despite his crash earlier in the session.
