WSBK: World Superbike eager for Northern Ireland round | News ... - crash.net

World Superbike executive director Daniel Carrera has given his backing to support the new Northern Ireland circuit being built in County Tyrone and hopes to secure a deal to host a round at the track from as early as 2019.

Earlier this month, private development company Manna Developments received planning permission from the Mid-Ulster District Council to begin work on construction an all-new circuit Lake Torrent in Coalisland on a former clay plant. The circuit is projected to be completed and opened in 2019 and has targeted hosting the World Superbike championship and the British Touring Car Championship.

Speaking to the BBC, Carrera says developers have shared plans with World Superbike organisers Dorna and the FIM and both parties are interested in a potential Northern Ireland round which he hopes will attract fans along with the addition boost by local star and reigning World...

WSB: Jonathan Rea Sports Personality of the Year petition gathers momentum - Motorcycle News

A petition for three-time World Superbike Champion Jonathan Rea to be shortlisted for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award has been signed by more than 6000 supporters.

Started by Rea’s sponsor, insurance firm Carole Nash, the petition has gained 6,638 signatures this week after the Ulsterman stormed to a historic third consecutive title in the Superbike World Championship at Magny Cours at the weekend.

Nobody in history has won three WSB titles back-to-back, and with Rea signed to remain with Kawasaki for at least another year more records could well come his way as he establishes his position in the record books.

Clinching the title with his 50th career win, Rea is now just nine wins away from Carl Fogarty’s all-time WSB win record and another title next year will see him draw level with the greatest WSB racer in history.

The last motorcycle star to be nominated for the...

World Superbikes at Portimao and British Superbikes at Oulton Park preview - Telegraph.co.uk

If either Sykes or Rea win race one on Saturday, Kawasaki will become the first manufacturer to record three consecutive wins at the circuit. Rea knows that he doesn’t have to win every race to retain his title, and in doing so become the first rider to win three consecutive championships.

Highly unlikely it may be, but if team-mate Sykes were to win the remaining eight races Rea could finish in second place eight times and he would still win the championship by 40 points.

At the last round in Germany at the Lausitzring Rea rode intelligently to two second places behind double race winner Davies, safe in the knowledge that he was extending his lead over Sykes, who came home third and fourth in the two races. This weekend the pressure is definitely on the chasing pack - or, more precisely, Tom Sykes.

World Superbikes: Jonathan Rea targets series treble at Magny-Cours - BBC Sport

Jonathan Rea is one short of 50 career World Superbike wins

Northern Ireland's Jonathan Rea is aiming to wrap up a historic third successive World Superbike title at the next round at Magny-Cours in France.

The 30-year-old moved 120 points clear at the top of the championship standings by winning both races at last weekend's round in Portimao.

"Now we can go to the next round in France and try to win it," said Rea.

"It was always my target to try and win it before the final round in Qatar to make the whole thing less stressful."

Rea would become the first rider to secure the World Superbike crown for three years in a row if he can turn his seemingly unassailable lead into a decisive margin in France, with the penultimate round in Spain also still to come in October.

"Magny-Cours is a circuit I enjoy, while Jerez is a track I have typically gone well at in winter testing,...
