WorldSBK champ Rea to ride parade lap at 2018 North West 200

Triple and reigning WorldSBK Champoin Jonathan Rea will ride a parade lap at this year's Vauxhall North West 200.

Rea’s NW200 outing is a huge boost to local biking fans who usually have to travel to Britain or further afield to watch their local hero in action. Recently crowned Irish Motorcyclist of the Year, he will be riding on the same roads where his racing hero, Joey Dunlop, won 13 races during a long and distinguished career.

“I’m very excited to go back and visit the North West 200 and be able to do a parade lap,” said Rea, who will ride a Kawasaki ZX-10RR. "I was fortunate enough to ride with my Dad around there more than 10 years ago.


"It’s an event that I follow closely and this season my schedule lets me visit. I always remember the atmosphere on the North coast during race week being amazing and I’m sure this year will be no different.”
