1 of 1

Jonathan Rea has ended speculation about his MotoGP or WSB future by re-signing for the Castrol Honda squad to race in WSB in 2012.

The 24 year old Brit signed a new contract at 11pm on Friday evening with the deal set to be announced to the world in a press conference later today.

Rea who has had his 2011 season wrecked by injury is convinced that he will have a more competitive bike for 2012 thanks to the new model Honda Fireblade along with upgraded electronics and suspension.

Speaking exclusively to MCN, Rea said: “I’m putting my faith in Honda for next year. It’s a great team that I really feel part of and we all know what needs to happen to get us back to the front of WSB and the cogs are turning.”

For full insight into the reasons why Rea re-signed and the rides he turned down in favour of Castrol Honda see MCN out Wednesday 7th September.
