Rea looks ahead to Silverstone

Silverstone Circuit plays host to the British round of the ENI FIM Superbike World Championship this weekend with Ballyclare’s Jonathan Rea in action.

The Honda World Superbike team rider is currently fifth in the championship and will be aiming to add more points to his tally at the second British event of this year’s championship.

In the first round earlier in the season at Donington Park, Rea took victory in race two and he will be on cloud nine after last weekend’s win in the Suzuka eight-hours race.  

Providing plenty of overtaking opportunities, Silverstone’s fast 3.666-mile Grand Prix circuit is loved by the riders - none more so than Rea.

he missed last year’s race through injury but is capable of winning on his day, so do not be surprised to see him on the top step of the podium come race day.
