Rea is steadily closing the gap on the leaders. Just checked at MotoGP and Rea was 3.8 seconds behind leader Crutchlow. It will be interesting to see his progress against the best throughout the day.

He should be able to compete against CRT guys but can't see much inroads to factory guys especially in the upcoming race. But that said it's a good opportunity for Rea to show his abilities.

@ Marc

This is just a taster for Rea though. You'd expect more substantial progress in the upcoming test at Aragon. That'll give him a lot more time to acclimatise. I think he'll be way faster than CRT pace after that.

What a load of cr*p from 'crash'. Laverty took Rea out yesterday and not a word said. Rea in the last round got taken out just before the finish - not a word said. Obviously a Rea hater for some sinister reason other than motorcycling and definately jealous of a talented individual!

how is rea allowed to race the FACTORY Honda when rookies arent allowed a factory ride. he's never raced in moto gp let alone the 8 rounds to qualify as a non rookie.

seems to me honda can do what they want and gp is all about them.

rookie rule out so they get marquez, now a rookie riding a factory bike this year.
