Thousands of people will be watching Marham-based Alastair Seeley and team newcomer Jake Dixon as they battle it out at the championships in Snetterton, starting today.

Mr Dixon joined the team at the last round at Knockhill in Scotland.

The team was established in 2012 by Lee Hardy, who raced for four seasons himself, and works at RAF Marham.

Mr Hardy, team principal, said: 'I haven't had amazing results at Snetterton. As a rider I was always quite unlucky there, so I am hoping to turn that round this year. If we can come away with a couple of top 10s, that would be fantastic.'

Mr Seeley, who crashed during a test run a few weeks ago, said the pace of the run had been good and he was 'fit and healthy'.

Mr Dixon said: 'The test run was good. If we can start where we left off then we will be in a good position.

'I think, step by step, we should walk before we can run – if we can get two solid top 15s, I think that will be a good start. Anything more will be a bonus.'
