WorldSBK heads to its 50th different circuit this weekend as Autodrom Most, Czech Republic, hosts round six with Jonathan Rea in championship command. 

The six-time world champion left Assen having completed the first race win clean-sweep of any rider this season, while Toprak Razgatlioglu being taken out of race two means a sizeable gap of 37 points has been established. 

Without MotoGP or WorldSBK ever having competed at the Autodrom Most, footage of previous races is scarce leaving Rea with a ‘completely unknown’ challenge. 

Rea added: "It is always exciting going to a new circuit. Most is completely unknown to me and the team. 

"Going to any new circuit I would study previous races, either MotoGP or past races of WorldSBK, but even after scouring the internet for footage it is very difficult to find race coverage of Most. 

"The layout looks nice, some fast and flowing corners so it is exciting to learn something new. When I arrive I will do some laps with my bicycle and do a track walk with my team. 

With Rea once again demonstrating the wide working ‘window’ of his Kawasaki Ninja ZX10-RR, specifically with tyres and track conditions at Assen, it's an area that could be to his advantage at the new Most circuit.

"The base set-up of our bike is in a really good window and on Friday it will be very important to find a good set-up and a rhythm straight away," said Rea.  

"Step-by-step we will get ready for the race. We do not have much time in practice but I enjoy that - being under pressure. 

"I am looking forward to seeing what we can do. We had a great weekend in Assen so it would be nice to carry on with that momentum behind us."
