21 Jul Laguna Seca SBK: Double win for Chaz Davies
It’s been an astonishing weekend for our rider Chaz Davies, finally, after many podiums and the Aragon victory, now a double win on the spectacular Laguna Seca raceway.
Starting from Pole position, he proved to be the superior rider – leading both races from the first corner without ever being worried by any opponent.
This double win allows him to regain third place in the championship. These are the results of our others riders: In Race 1: Mercado 9, Camier 10. In Race 2: Badovini 6, Canepa 8, Mercado 9, Camier 10 e Baiocco 13.
Next race: 2nd August in Malaysia.
Chaz Davies , X-lite X-802R:
“I’m really, really happy with these results, and we’ve definitely seen the fruits of our labour here. The track here perhaps limits our weak points and plays to our strengths, and we were able to put together two really good races that went almost exactly to plan. I didn’t think we’d be able to lap in 1.23s but I was able to make some really quick first laps in Race 1, pushing hard for the first twelve or so and then it was all about gap management. We made a few small tweaks for race 2 and I think those changes were useful. I took a lot of risks with the rain, and was very worried about crashing but luckily the rain stopped and things went smoothly from there to the finish line. I thank my entire team, Ducati and our sponsors – it’s been a really solid weekend, and a lot better than last year’s outcome of course.”
