Several sources, including Speed Week, are reporting that Gino Rea has re-signed with the Intermoto Czech Honda team for his second season in the World Supersport Championship.

The 21-year-old Briton graduated to WSS as the reigning Superstock 600 champion and finished the year a solid ninth overall.

The highlight of Rea's season was a home podium at Silverstone, and he was only denied a repeat rostrum when he was disqualified from second place due to a technical infringement at the Nurburgring.

Rea would be the fourth British rider to be confirmed on the 2011 WSS grid, alongside Chaz Davies, Sam Lowes and James Ellison.
