Alastair Seeley will compete for Relentless TAS Suzuki in the 2011 British Supersport championship.

The 31-year-old finished sixth in last year's British Superbike series in his rookie season but will now ride the all-new GSX-R 600 on the circuits.

Seeley will ride in the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport events for the Moneymore outfit at the North West 200 on 21 May.

The Carrickfergus rider won the feature Superbike race at this year's NW200.

In doing so, Seeley became the first Northern Ireland rider to land the top prize at the North West since Phillip McCallen in 1997.

Seeley secured his maiden British Superbike success at a wet Brands Hatch in August, having been crowned British Superstock champion in 2009.

"My aim is to try and win the Supersport championship and put the new GSX-R 600 firmly in the limelight," said Seeley.

"I hope to hit the ground running just like I did in '09 in the Superstock class," he added.

Under new rules introduced for next season, there will be two Supersport races at each British championship round.

"It's an important year for Suzuki, re-entering British Supersport with a new bike and I know Alastair feels it's a huge honour to have been asked to represent them," said Relentless Suzuki team boss Philip Neill.

"We are confident that Alastair can be hugely successful."
