A Lap Of Donington Park With Jonathan Rea

Last year's WorldSBK race winner, Jonathan Rea, guides us around a lap of Donington Park

Jonathan Rea was the man that ended Tom Sykes' winning streak at Donington Park. The reigning WorldSBK champion snapped a nine race streak for Sykes by winning Race 2 at the British round and he's excited ahead of his home round.

“Donington is a circuit of two halves,” said Rea. “Sectors 1 and 2 are very flowing, and the final sector is very stop and start. It's very difficult to find the right setup and you're always making a compromise. Sometimes I have had a setting that is great for the first half and other times I've set the bike up for the final sector. It really depends on what you need to do with the bike you have. You need to find a compromise between stability and agility but it's a very satisfying track to get right.
