Seeley snatches NW 200 Superbike pole

Alastair Seeley takes a dramatic Superbike pole position at the North West 200 as he finishes 0.01mph ahead of Michael Dunlop in Thursday's final practice session.

Michael Dunlop looked to have held on to his provisional pole position for much of the Superbike session before Seeley's late heroics.

Thirteen-time North West 200 winner Rutter continued his impressive form to qualify third fastest with Lee Johnston, Peter Hickman and Ian Hutchinson occupying fourth to sixth slots.
