Jonathan Rea sets new practice lap record in Thailand
Defending champion and current World Superbike Championship points leader Jonathan Rea set a new practice lap record at the Thai second round of the series.
The Kawasaki rider, who won the opening two races at round one in Australia, continued his fine start to the season at Buriram.
Rea's lap of one minute 32.997 seconds saw him top the timesheets in the final practice ahead of the Aruba.It Racing Ducati of Chaz Davies.
His team-mate Marco Melandri was third quickest with Rea's fellow Kawasaki rider Tom Sykes in fourth.
Pata Yamaha's Alex Lowes was fifth quickest ahead of his team-mate Michael van der Mark.
The top 10 was completed by Jordi Torres (BMW), Xavi Fores (Ducati), Leon Camier (MV Augusta) and Randy Krummenacher (Kawasaki).
