WSBK – Davies dominates in Aragon

10-0924_R03_Davies_action

Ducati Factory rider Chaz Davies enjoyed a weekend of dominance in Aragon, crushing the opposition and taking a brace of wins to reignite his championship challenge.

The Welshman was unable to qualify on the first row, but come raceday on Saturday and Sunday that didn’t matter – nobody else was able to match his Panigale R’s blistering pace, and he leaves Spain with 50 points in his pocket.

He said: “This weekend feels like a dream. The bike was competitive from the get-go, and we only made small tweaks. The technical upgrades brought here have given us what we needed. In Thailand I could only stay in the slipstream, while here I’ve been able to pass my opponents also on the straight. In Assen, however, we will start from scratch.

“The season has just begun, and things can change quite quickly, but I’m really happy with our overall package. It’s my third year with Ducati, and I witnessed a constant growth. Now the list of things to improve is really short, and I want to thank everybody in the team and the factory for the amount of work put in.”
