Just read in RRW that Rea is the first rider to win 3 championship titles in a row. He is also tied with Troy Bayliss for second in WSBK titles.
Nice!

Getting an American rider in WSBK!

https://www.motorsport.com/wsbk/news...r-2018-984455/

New York-born Jacobsen has been a mainstay of the World Supersport class for the past four seasons, finishing runner-up to Kenan Sofuoglu in 2015 following a mid-season switch to Honda machinery.

He joined MV Agusta for the 2017 campaign, finishing the year sixth overall with no wins.

Now the 24-year-old steps up to WSBK for 2018 on board a satellite Honda Fireblade run by Superstock 1000 squad TripleM, which will likewise be making its debut in the top division.

ďIím very excited to be making my World Superbike debut with TripleM Honda WSBK Team," said Jacobsen.

"Itís a great opportunity for me to be finally racing in this class and I want to thank the team and Honda for making this possible.

"Both the team and I will be rookies in the World Superbike championship so thereíll surely be a lot to learn, but itís a challenge that stimulates me and I canít wait to get started.

"I enjoyed racing the Fireblade in the EWC two years ago and I love riding 1000cc bikes, so Iím looking forward to trying the new Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2.Ē

The works Ten Kate Honda team has yet to finalise its line-up for 2018, with new signing Leon Camier its only representative in last week's Jerez test.

Best of luck to PJ! A group of us used to rent Jennings GP in February for a few years in a row, to get rid of the winter cobwebs. One year we shared the track with a few racers, at our invitation. PJ Jacobson was one of them, when he was probably 15 or 16. He was riding a two stroke 125 or 250, I don't remember which. Jennings doesn't have a lot of straight, and he barely slowed down on a lap. Talk about carrying speed. Geoff May was also there that year, when he was riding for Jordan. It was great to see them ride up close. No, we didn't get on the track at the same time as they did, for obvious reasons. There were also a couple of other lesser known racers there. Great to watch and hang out with.

PJ - He was riding for Celtic Racing at the time.

He changed his own tires.



Good times!

Good luck to both. Maybe Nicky will ride with Jake and get the Honda upfront.
