Rea hoping to “fight for race wins”, edge of the tyres “can be quite punishing”

Jonathan Rea, a six-time world champion, recently secured his first win of the season at Most. With four rounds remaining before leaving Kawasaki, Rea aims to end his career with the Japanese brand on a high note. Magny-Cours, where Rea has seven race wins and previous WorldSBK titles, is a track he enjoys and considers it a mix of various challenges. He emphasizes the need for a bike that excels in braking, acceleration, and agility. Rea sees the long straight at Magny-Cours as both punishing and a prime overtaking opportunity at the Adelaide hairpin. After a successful test at Motorland Aragon, Rea feels confident about performing well there. Meanwhile, Alex Lowes, Rea’s teammate and his partner for four seasons, admits it will be sad to see Rea leave Kawasaki. Lowes is looking forward to the upcoming races at Magny-Cours and aims to fight for podium finishes. He praises Rea as a great champion and acknowledges their successful partnership at KRT. Lowes wishes Rea all the best in his future endeavors.
