WSBK Donington: Rea suggest more to come from Honda

Pata Honda's Jonathan Rea will start his home round of the World Superbike Championship at Donington Park from fourth position on the grid.
Jonathan Rea was satisfied to come away with a second row start for his home round of the World Superbike Championship at Donington Park, the Ulsterman qualifying in fourth position.

Keen to replicate the form that saw him claim a win at Donington Park last season, Rea battled it out for the front row during Superpole but would fall just short of making it to the head of the grid.

Suggesting there is more to come from the Pata Honda heading into the races, Rea is hopeful he can pick up a pair of good results after a tough weekend last time out at Monza.

“I guess today was OK and I'm happy enough to be fourth and to be in the top two rows here. We started the weekend a little on and off and sluggish with the settings, and it really didn't help with Friday morning being wet and the second session not being perfect.

“So we've really only made progress between the two sessions today and I think we haven't shown our full potential yet. I know I'm struggling a little bit on the bike in some areas and we need to iron that out first but I was quite happy with the lap time we set in Superpole 3 on a race tyre. Hopefully I can make two good races tomorrow.”
