points were won by North­ern Ir­ish rider Jonathan Rea this sea­son – a new record for the most points scored in a World Su­per­bike sea­son.

Rea sealed his third world cham­pi­onship ti­tle in Septem­ber. He now has 54 ca­reer World Su­per­bike race wins, just five be­hind record­holder Carl Fog­a­rty.
