Alastair Seeley confirms 2024 racing plans after securing last minute deal

Former British Supersport Champion Alastair Seeley has confirmed he will return to the class for the 2024 season after landing a deal to compete with Binch Racing.

The Ulsterman clinched the title back in 2011 aboard a Suzuki and is set to form one-half of a two-man rider line-up for the team alongside Oliver Barr on a Yamaha R6.

A regular in the Superbike and Superstock classes too, Seeley looked to be out of a full-time ride for 2024 after parting ways with SYNETIQ TAS Racing BMW Motorrad despite claiming a victory en route to third in the final standings.


He comes on board to replace Zak Courderoy, who has been ruled out of his seat by injury.

“I'm very excited to be joining Binch Racing backed by 3b Construction for another year in the BSB paddock,” Seeley said. 

“I hope to get back banging bars with my old foes and climbing onto the rostrum. I wish Zak a speedy recovery from his injury and I'm really looking forward to nurturing young Oliver as we go. 

“We are going to have a lot of fun. I haven't ridden a bike since Brands Hatch last October so I’ll be rusty for a day or two as we test in Navarra but then hope to make strides during race weekend.”

Team Owner David Binch added: “It is with great expectation and a tinge of sadness that I have signed Alastair for our upcoming 2024 Supersport campaign. 

“Sadness that Zak’s injury has precluded him from challenging in 2024 but great expectation that Alastair is a proven winner on a Yamaha and we sure do like to fight for those wins.

“Having spent time with Alastair it’s obvious he’s not afraid of getting stuck in and the desire to win is as strong as ever. 


“To be at the front, our Yamaha R6 will need to be ridden hard against the other competitors in the Supersport class. Without doubt, ‘The Wee Wizard’ has proved he can ride hard!

“Oliver Barr’s progress has been amazing during winter testing and having Alastair’s presence and experience is a great benefit. 

“The Navarra test has come at the perfect time for us to get some quality testing under our belt with new parts and team familiarisation before the Supersport season opener. 

“We have to be realistic that there are bound to be a few teething problems, but to say we are excited to get going is an understatement. Thank you to everyone who has made this happen."
