Superstock race rescheduled for Saturday at North West 200

The first Superstock race which was due to be held on Thursday evening has been rescheduled for Saturday at the North West 200.

Dry, clear conditions let race organisers complete the first two races – Supersport and Supertwin – but an incident in the third and final race resulted in it red flagged and time running out.

Race one winner Alistair Seeley was on pole position for the Superstock race but it was Lee Johnston – who finished third in the Supersport race – who led by the end of lap one. That was the only full lap that was completed, however, following an incident involving Sandor Bitter at Ballysally Roundabout. The rider was taken to hospital and released a statement on his Facebook page saying that he had broken a few bones, including one rib, and is awaiting further CT and MRI scans. He hopes to be fit for the TT. Paul Shoesmith came off his bike at Metropole but was reported to be uninjured.

As the sun started to set and time ticked on, the race was eventually called off but has been rescheduled for Saturday.
