Alastair Seeley has split with the Tyco Suzuki MCE British Superbike squad which could pave the way for American PJ Jacobsen to partner Josh Brookes on the team's brace of GSX-R100s.
Seeley won both the National Superstock 1000 and British Supersport titles with the team but struggled with the Superbike this season. The Northern Irish rider is now looking for a ride and has been linked with the Mar-Train squad should they move their existing Supersport star Jack Kennedy up to BSB.
"I've had a great time working with Philip and Hector Neill, all the boys in the team, Suzuki GB and our various sponsors. They took me to two British titles and I learned a lot about all aspects of the sport during this time," said Seeley.
"For that I'd like to thank them and Suzuki, but everything comes to an end at some point and I admire Philip for being honest with me so early after the season has finished. It allows me time to find a new position but I'll still be calling in for a 'brew' and a yarn with the boys next year. It's a small industry and as Philip says, who knows, I could be back on a Suzuki at some point before I hang the leathers up."
