Defending World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea has signed a two-year contract extension with his Kawasaki Racing Team.

Rea, 29, dominated last year's championship as he took 14 wins in his first season with the Kawasaki team.

The Northern Irishman has a 35-point lead in this year's championship.

"Our objectives and way of working are very well matched so it makes perfect sense to extend this for two more seasons," said Rea.
