  • Jonathan Rea to continue with Pata Honda Team for 2014 WSBK season

    27 January 2014: It was announced at the Motor Bike Expo exhibition at Verona in Italy that British rider Jonathan Rea is to remain with the Pata Honda Team, along with team mate Leon Haslam, for the 2014 WSBK season

    Both Jonathan and Leon will be riding the new Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP in the 14-round eni FIM Superbike World Championship 2014 which kicks off with Round 1 at the Phillip Island circuit in Australia on 23 February.

  • Jonathan Rea:: "It was quite difficult at times in 2013 and the season ended badly in injury, but my leg feels OK now. It’s not quite 100% and I have some discomfort walking on it, but on the bike it’s fine. This team feels like a family to me now and knowing all the faces and how the team works helps me to get the best out of the package and the people around me. We all share the same goals but it feels like there’s been a change of mentality for this season – everyone is even more focused than usual. By the time we get to Phillip Island we will have tested a lot, and we’re really pushing hard, so I think that if anyone is in good shape to challenge at the front when the season starts, it’ll be me and my team."
