FIGHTER REA TAKES 4TH AT ARAGON
Sun, 12 Apr 2015
CIA LANDLORDS INSURANCE HONDA’S Gino Rea battled hard to secure fourth place at the third round of the World Supersport Championship at Aragon in Spain.
Starting from seventh, Gino dug deep in the last two laps to hold on to fourth from a hard-charging Lorenzo Zanetti. Gino said: “I am a bit frustrated as I know we are capable of a lot more. As soon as the tyre dropped off, I didn’t have the pace to go with the leading group.
“When I was behind Smith I had too many moments with the rear breaking loose. I had to be a bit smart and was glad to hold on to fourth from Zanetti. It is not the position that frustrates me; rather knowing we were capable of being closer to the front three. I think we can improve our setting more and will go to Assen looking to get back on the podium.”
There is no break for CIA Landlords Insurance Honda as the team travels directly to Assen in Holland for the fourth round of the Championship next Sunday, April 19th.
CIA Landlords Insurance Honda Team Manager Simon Buckmaster said: “That was a good ride by Gino, fighting to hold off Zanetti. His foot is not fully healed and as a team we need to find the last little bit to get to the front. It’s been a good job by the CIA Landlords Insurance Honda team this weekend."
