Jonathan Rea is the 2015 WSBK Champion!
Jonathan Rea headed to Jerez in the knowledge that he only needed to bag six points to secure the 2015 World Superbike Championship, following an incredible year so far it was never really in doubt that he would secure the series win.
The Kawasaki rider finished off the podium for the first time in 2015 in race one, however his fourth place finish was enough to bag the points that he needed to emerge victorious in the championship. Rea is the first Northern Irishman since Joey Dunlop and Brian Reid in 1986 to win a world title, and he ensured he acknowledged their legacy, wearing both Reid and Dunlop helmets in a fantastic touch on his slowing down lap.
Rea said after the race: "It's an amazing feeling. This is the reward for all the hard work for most of the season. I have to thank my team and my family. It's incredible; it's amazing to achieve the dream I had when I was younger!"
Here at MCE Insurance we congratulate him for an incredible performance in the championship - it's great to see that nice guys can finish first!
