Rea to remain with Pata Honda


World Superbike rider Jonathan Rea has confirmed he will remain with Pata Honda next season.

The Castletown resident is currently recovering from a fractured femur he sustained in a crash at Nurburgring in Germany last month, but is optimistic about riding again before the end of the season.

Rea says he had had other options to consider, but decided to stick with Pata Honda, because of the faith and respect he has for a team he's been with for six years, and a company (Honda) he's been with his entire career.

Rea will once again be joined in the lineup by Leon Haslam.
