Jonathan Rea again turned heads as the final day of the joint MotoGP and World Superbike test in Jerez concluded with the fourth quickest time of the week.

Only Andrea Dovizioso, Cal Crutchlow and Jorge Lorenzo lapped quicker than Rea’s time of 1’37.986 Rea clocked using a super-sticky Pirelli qualifying tyre this morning.

Even more impressive is that Rea’s time is almost a full second quicker than the time Marco Melandri recorded on his way to pole at the Jerez World Superbike race in September.

Andrea Iannone was second quickest on the final day, just 0.044 behind the reigning three-time World Superbike champion ahead of the KTM of Pol Espargaro in third.


The second Suzuki of Alex Rins was fourth quickest to round out Friday’s times with the second quickest Superbike of Tom Sykes fifth.

Danilo Petrucci was sixth quickest on the Pramac Ducati ahead of Alex Lowes, who also improved his time on the final day to place ahead of GP Brits Bradley Smith and Scott Redding. Jack Miller rounded out the top ten.
