Gary Dunlop hits out at NW200 fans who appeared to cheer Alastair Seeley's last lap Supersport crash

Gary Dunlop has hit out at spectators who appeared to cheer when all-time North West 200 record holder Alastair Seeley crashed out of Thursday’s Supersport race.

Carrickfergus man Seeley, chasing an unprecedented 25th success around the 8.9-mile ‘Triangle’ course, was embroiled in a battle with fellow Northern Ireland rider Lee Johnston on the final lap.

Seeley edged ahead on the brakes at Juniper Hill chicane but the 39-year-old ran in too hot and took to the grass, losing the rear of his EHA Yamaha and crashing out of contention. Fortunately, the two-time British champion was not seriously hurt.

Johnston went on to wrap up his first victory in the class at the event on the Ashcourt Racing Yamaha from Dean Harrison (Silicone Engineering Kawasaki) and James Hillier (Quattro Plant Kawasaki).

Motorcycling fans on social media claimed a number of spectators cheered Seeley’s unfortunate slip off, prompting Dunlop’s response on Twitter.The Ballymoney man tweeted:

‘Everyone has there favourite riders and wants to see them win, but cheering when another rider crashes is disgusting. And the sad thing is, there was plenty done it yesterday when Alastair went down. Pathetic’.

I dont think anyone wants to see a rider drop there bikes on the road circuits. Unfortunately some riders dont help themselves in there quest for self promotion, which results in the reaction from some fans as witnessed in this article when things go wrong.

I'm not a lover of Seeley, but nobody can deny that he's special round the NW. As for cheering when he dropped it , is shameful.
