Jonathan Rea says the prospect of a second straight World Superbikes triumph is "crazy" after a second-placed finish in Jerez leaves him two points away from the title.
The Northern Irish rider is 48 points clear of team-mate Tom Sykes with only 50 available in the final round in Qatar in a fortnight.
Rea needs to finish 14th or better in one of the two races to become the first rider to seal successive World Superbike Championship successes since Carl Fogarty in 1999.
