Rea targets Brno repeat

Jonathan Rea heads to the latest round of the World Superbike Championship at Brno keen to add to his victory tally, twelve months on from scoring his maiden world championship win at the same circuit.

Rea began a strong run to the end of 2008 when he claimed a first World Supersport victory in the Czech Republic last year, the Northern Irishman going on to win another two races before the season was out.

Following on from a successful two-day test at Imola, one that saw the Ten Kate Honda rider emerge with the fastest lap time, Rea is hopeful of building on his fourth position in the current standings, as well as add to his Misano triumph.

“Imola was good for us – not just the result and the progress that we were able to make, but because of the way we went about it. It showed how well everyone is working as a team now and how motivated we all are to get the kind of results that we know we can achieve.

“Brno was good on the Supersport bike last year and I think the track should suit the Superbike even better. We've got a good setting with the new package now and we'll be pushing on as hard as we can to get some more good results this weekend.”

I feel this guys could be a dark horse, mixxing it up with the established riders in the reamaining of the season in WSB. He has some real talent and it looks like the bikes started working. :)
