Rea wraps up double at Laguna Seca



Jonathan Rea produced yet another WSBK masterclass in America on Sunday as he tore through the field in Race Two to a comprehensive victory and complete the double at Laguna Seca.

Starting in ninth position after his victory in Race One a day earlier, Rea was up to fourth place by lap two, the Northern Irishman edged past Michael van der Mark and into second place on lap four.

The three-time champion then reeled in leader Eugene Laverty before passing him three laps later.

Rea then pulled away to earn his 62nd WSBK victory and a fourth career win at the US circuit, a new record for Laguna Seca.

Aruba.it Ducati rider Chaz Davies finished in second place while Laverty managed to hold on for the final podium place - his first in four years.

Alex Lowes won a race-long battle with teammate van der Mark to take fourth place.

The win saw Rea (320 points) stretch his lead over Davies at the top of the standings to 75 points with 10 races of the season remaining.
