WORLD Superbike Champion Jonathan Rea has been nominated for this year's BBC Sports Personality Of The Year.
The Ballyclare rider has enjoyed spectacular success over the past 12 months, not only winning his third WorldSBK title, but becoming the first ever rider to win three Superbike titles in a row. 
He also broke the all-time points record for a season in WorldSBK; secured Kawasaki's 100th win in Superbike racing at world level; notched up his 50th personal win in WorldSBK; and helped Kawasaki secure a third Superbike manufacturer's title in a row.
Jonathan joins some exalted sporting stars as a nominee for the title and is the first motorcyclist on the list in a decade.
The winner will be announced at the annual awards event in the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Sunday, December 17.
