Mayor congratulates Jonathan Rea following third successive World Superbike title

Monday 2 October 2017

The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim has hailed the achievements of Jonathan Rea MBE after the racing star claimed a record third straight World Superbike title at the weekend.

The Borough’s First Citizen, Councillor Paul Reid, said: “Congratulations to Jonathan on yet another incredible and record victory.

“We in Mid and East Antrim are hugely proud of our strong ties to Jonathan, who is a true sporting hero, inspiration and ambassador.

“We are so fortunate in Northern Ireland and Mid and East Antrim to have such a wealth of talent in terms of riders and drivers.

“I know everybody at Larne Grammar School, where Jonathan was a pupil, are delighted with his history-making exploits.

“Jonathan is a complete gentleman on and off the track and it is fitting that he is reaping the ultimate accolades and carving out a remarkable legacy.

“Jonathan has again put our area and Northern Ireland as a whole on the map and I am delighted and proud at what he has achieved.

“I really hope Jonathan’s phenomenal success is recognised at the next BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards and I have no doubt he will continue to re-write the history books going forward.

“I will be recommending to my fellow Elected Members this evening that Mid and East Antrim Borough Council formally recognises Jonathan’s achievements.”
