Jonathan Rea stays in Ten Kate Honda

Jonathan Rea was one of the riders involved in this year’s World Superbike silly season.
The Northern Irishman was linked to BMW despite having an option of another year on his contract with the Ten Kate team, however these rumors have been laid to rest, because Rea and Ten Kate Honda have officially confirmed that he’ll be staying with the team in 2011.

Rea is currently third in the standings, with a double win at Assen, a win at the Brno and Nurburgring rounds and six other podiums this season.
“I’m really happy to be staying with this fantastic team for another season.

We’re all pulling in the same direction and we’re all really excited about the prospects for the Honda CBR1000RR Even though I’m still only 23, the team has taught me an enormous amount about world championship racing, both on the track and off it and I’ve become a regular race winner.
To become a championship winner, I recognise that I need continuity and that’s what I’ve got now.
It’s no secret that my ultimate ambition is to compete in GPs but I’ll still only be 24 next season so I’m really happy to aim for the World Superbike title in 2011 and then hopefully take the next step forward after that within the Honda family.
