John McGuinness up front on the Superbike en route to a Race 1 win - 2010 North West 200
HM Plant Honda's John McGuinness (4) took the first win of the 2010 North West 200 in the opening Superbike race.
The North West 200 races kicked off on Saturday with the first Superbike competition. Contesting his 17th year at the Triangle circuit in Northern Ireland, John McGuinness claimed the first win of the day, with the HM Plant Honda man being joined on the podium by Kawasaki’s Connor Cummins and Suzuki’s Alastair Seeley.

After numerous delays due to wind and rain, the planned five-lap race was shortened to four. Jumping off the line it was BMW rider Keith Amor who claimed the holeshot, with McGuinness and Cummins in tow. By the end of Lap 1 Cummins jumped into the lead, followed by McGuinness. Amor drifted to third, with Seeley beginning to pressure.

Cummins kept McGuinness honest the remainder of the race, right on the TT-legend’s rear wheel the entire time. Seeley would soon dispatch Amor on Lap 4, the Relentless Suzuki rider turning the fastest lap of the race at a 120.985 mph average. Stuart Easton, who finished in fifth behind Armor, once again posted the fastest top speed at 202 mph. As for American Jimmy Moore, the Oregon rider finished an impressive 12th.

BMW winning in my homeland of Northern Ireland. This is great racing to see, if you can ever make it over there to sit in a field at the side of the road.
