BBC SPOTY hope for Rea

Awards presented tonight

It's a big night for Castletown resident Jonathan Rea.

The Ulsterman, who's won three consecutive World Superbike titles, is one of the nominees for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.

The ceremony takes place this evening.

In 2017 Rea became the first rider to win a hat-trick of WSB titles, doing so with a record points total for the season.

He says he's looking forward to tonight, and is grateful to everyone who helped him get nominated:
