WSBK » Rea: The rough diamond has been polished

Insisting that he is focussing purely on himself and not what any of his rivals are doing, Castrol Honda star Jonathan Rea is pinning his hopes of 2011 World Superbike Championship glory on the Honda CBR1000RR - a 'rough diamond' come good

Pre-season favorite for the title, IMO.

Seeing a Castrol Honda win the title again would be real magic.

Fingers crossed for no injuries this year!

How cool would it be to see Colin come back in 2012 on this team and be successful?! We'll see after 2011, but I would like to see him and Johnny switch series at least.

Castrol Hondas again in the WSBK pack - what a sight it will be! Rea is certainly one of the favourites - together with Biaggi and Checa (if Althea will bring competitive bike for all season). But my personal dark horse is Leon Camier. And of course watch out for Eugene Laverty!

Rea-lly hope he gets the title this year. Has shown his class through his career and now the consistency is getting there he has to be a favourite.

So did you read ten kate's comments yet?

I said a couple of days ago in the other article that Honda DOES NOT have factory evolvement in WSBK! It's just a privateer effort! but everyone laughed. Well, he just confirmed what I said...
