Rea wins prestigous Suzuka 8-hour

Jonathan Rea became the first British rider to win the prestigious Suzuka 8-hour Endurance race. Riding the FCC TSR Honda with team-mate Kousuke Akiyoshi, Rea secured a convincing four lap victory to secure his name in the history books. Speaking to MCN from Japan, Rea said: “Right now I’ve got a million emotions going through my head. First of all...

Does loyalty still count for the Japanese?

If so then this victory could well be the most important of Rea's career. The only possible way Jonny will stay on a Fairyblade next year will be under a contractual certainty of a RCV in 2014. 


Each year the CBR gets longer in the tooth, christ it's closer to the snail like Ducati than the whippet Kawasaki. Jonny's paid his dues on that bike, year in, year out, far and away out performing previously world class race winning riders. Like Stoner,  Rea wins in spite of his machine. 

 HRC owe Jonny. Let's see some genuine loyalty rewarded.

What a race to win, well done to Rea & Akiyoshi. Although the Ten Kate set up is how it should be in WSB, Rea always has to push beyond his bikes capability to keep with the factory bikes

well done Honda

great weekend for Honda, Jr and co winning the Suzuka 8 hours and Casey doing the business in motogp at what you can consider Yamahas territory!

 

Not sure i agree with all these people that say Honda owe JR Motogp rides, Factory superbikes etc. Honda can only do so much with what they have in hand. If JR decides its not enough for him then he should just pack his kit and leave to better pastures. No one is forcing him to stay. Honda puts the deal down in front of him, hes the one who signs on the dotted lines. Simple.
