Rea aiming high

WHALLEY motorcycle pair Nigel and Ben Rea will bid to use home support to their advantage when they tackle the NorthWest 200 races in Northern Ireland this weekend.

The duo hail from across the Irish sea and both Nigel, 41, and Ben, 21, will be hoping to impress.

“We will have quite a few cousins coming over to watch and it is an international event and one which we want to do well in,” said Ben.

The pair will face off against each other in the 600 cc Supersport races on the 897 mile circuit.

The duo are also competing in a number of other races starting tonight and heading into the weekend.

The event, which is on closed public roads, has attracted a stellar entry including John McGuinness.
