The numbers behind Seeley’s successes thumbnail

ON the back of its most memorable North West 200, Tyco BMW has taken the unusual step of releasing some information about its record-breaking bikes.
The team left the Coleraine and District Motor Club Ltd event with three wins courtesy of Alastair Seeley, two double-rider podiums and a new fastest lap.
Data captured by the S1000RR Superstock's hi-tech telemetry system gives a unique insight into its workings - and the mind-bending speeds it reached.
During the first 1000cc race on Thursday night of race week Alastair Seeley made thirty up-shifts and twenty nine downshifts of the gearbox over a lap.
The highest speed reached by the 'Wee Wizard' was 202 miles per hour on the run down to University Corner with the slowest speed being a leisurely 27.9 miles per hour as he negotiated the tricky York Corner. But that's just half the story, according to Tyco BMW's Technical Support expert Stewart Johnstone.
