Ten Kate Honda's Jonathan Rea says he is looking for some better results at the Magny-Cours World Superbike round this weekend after a disappointing performance at Imola which saw him grab a handful of points.
The young Irishman got off the floor in race one to claim seventh and could only muster sixth in the second outing after qualifying on the front row and getting away with the leaders in the opening laps in both races.
"My memories of Magny-Cours are not so great because I got taken out in the Supersport race last year, but I’m feeling pretty confident going there with the CBR1000RR this weekend," said Rea.
"The bike has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few races and there’s a really good working relationship going on with the team now. I was pretty disappointed with the results last weekend at Imola, which didn’t reflect all the
hard work that the team has done or the pace that we showed during practice and qualifying. I’ll be looking for something better this weekend, for sure.”
