Rea makes it ten straight victories



Jonathan Rea won the second WSBK race at Villicum and become the first World Superbike rider in history to win 10 successive races in a single season.

By lap eight, Rea had assumed control of the race and was quite obviously the quickest racer on the day. He started proceedings from eighth on the grid.

His pathway to leading the race was an eventful one though. He incurred stiff resistance from Xavi Fores and Marc Melandri, but once he worked his way through the traffic there was only ever going to be one winner.

Rea secured his 16th win of the season with a five-second buffer between himself and Fores in second. Melandri claimed third.

Doubles at the last five rounds of the series have helped the 31-year-old clinch his fourth title in a row.
