Admiring Rea's commitment

Upon learning that his Kawasaki team were skipping the recent Lausitzring test, he decided to take his own road going ZX-10R to the test instead!

Correct me but if I read that article right than Rea had not seen the circuit previously?

If so, then mega kudos to the guy for making the effort as it shows awesome commitment and desire when it comes to results plus bringing anything from his own bike to the team bike, plus the track knowledge would be immense in terms of head start (same as the other riders)

I'm sure they have because I remember Bayliss and Edwards there in 2002. I think it may have been dropped shortly after they left the series for GP.
