The six-time world champion has not passed the motorcycle

When you have a motorsport star and a very successful driver, who is two points faster than 99% of the people in the world, it is logical to think that such people have special driving skills.

Then it is a bit surprising when you find out that such a rider, who regularly sets new records, achieves victories and takes titles, is not passable for a motorcycle.

Yes, that seems absurd. On the one hand, you have a champion who knows Jerez as his pocket, he is great on Le Mans, he has the record of the Cathedral of Assen, but he cannot go to the store on a motorcycle.

It is precisely this fate that Jonathan Rea, the current WSBK champion, is. Yes, the man who has ruled this championship unchallenged for the last six years, has not passed for a motorcycle.

In a recent interview, the Briton revealed why this is so.

“Yes, I have not passed for a motorcycle. I took the theoretical part of the exam on the Isle of Man and failed. I was preparing to take the exam in Northern Ireland last year, but all tests were canceled at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I really want to pass. I even had the idea to make a documentary about it and post it on YouTube. ”

“I am just ashamed. I’m a six-time world champion, but I couldn’t even go to the store on a scooter. “

Rea did not mention whether (and when) he plans to take the exam again. Preparations for the new season are underway, so we believe there is no time.
