Rising star Gino Rea another successful weekend at Magny Cours with a second palce finish in the Superstock 600, meaning Gino now leads the championship going in to the final round at Portimao.

Gino started from second on the grid but was pushed back to eighth early on in the race.

Rea settled in and came back through the pack, setting the fastest lap on the way. Gino was invloved in a last lap scrap for the win but finished second.

This leaves Gino at the top of the championship table, 3 points ahead of Italian Petrucci and 7 in front of Belgian rider Lonbois.

Gino said: "Magny cours went pretty much to plan and we have come out leading the WSB Superstock 600 championship.

"The start of my race didn’t go how I wanted it to, I was a little eager and pushed a bit too much in the first couple of laps, I ended up going backwards to eighth place.

"I regrouped and settled down but was having small problems with my clutch, I made my way back up to the front and finished the race in seond.

"It was perfect for my championship, I lead by 3 points and the final race is Portimao.

"Last year I won there, so I hope I can have the same success and clinch the championship title this year!"
