Sealey on song at opening practice
Honda rider Guy Martin says he's at the North West 200 to get a signature for his Mountain Course licence so he can race at the TT.
Two years ago he complained about the chicanes at The Triangle circuit and vowed he wouldn't return.
Speaking to BBC Northern Ireland sports reporter Stephen Watson he described his appearance as "a means to an end":-
Alastair Seeley topped the qualifying sheets in the Supersport and Superbike classes with Michael Rutter quickest in the Superstock and Martin Jessopp leading the Supertwins.
Manx rider Dan Kneen is 11th fastest in the Superstock and 13th in the Superbikes.
Dave Madsen Mygdal is 15th in the Supertwin standings and has qualified for the Superbike (45th) and Superstock (43rd).
