Jonathan Rea and the Kawasaki Racing Team head to Most this weekend for the seventh round of the WorldSBK Championship. The Northern Irish rider is hoping to do well ahead of the summer break.

Last time out at Imola Jonathan Rea stood on the podium twice in both of the long races throughout the weekend. However, throughout this season Rea has not yet won a race and has not been able to match the likes of Alvaro Bautista and Toprak Razgatlioglu.

Rea and Kawasai have never won a race at Most and will be eager to get on the top step this weekend. But it does not seem that the six-time world champion believes it will be an easy task.


“Most is a relatively new track to the calendar and we have been there twice now," said Jonathan Rea ahead of this weekends WorldSBK round. "So we don’t have a massive amount of data compared to some other circuits.

"It’s a tough track to master as it has a little bit of everything. There are stop-start sections, flowing sections and lots of changes of direction. It is really critical to have the bike well set-up there. That will be our prime focus on Friday morning, working towards the longer races. Hopefully we will get some consistent weather and find a good feeling.

"It is a track that I have struggled at in the past; struggled with the nature of the place a little bit. The last few races have been positive for us, battling for podiums through this middle part of the year and always racing inside the top five.

"That will be the key, to keep that trend going by fighting for podiums. It will be a nice round to try and get a few good results at before the summer break. It is always better to go into the break with a positive feeling.”
