DAVIES AND THE ARUBA.IT RACING – DUCATI SUPERBIKE TEAM SNATCH VICTORY AT SEPANG!

Sepang (Malaysia), Sunday 2 August 2015 – Chaz Davies, riding with the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team, completed two fantastic races at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, reaching the podium in race 1, in second position, before battling with Rea to the line in race 2 to snatch the victory!

Race 1 – from sixth position on the grid Davies got away well, moving into second position through the first corner. By lap nine Rea had closed in on the Welshman, at which point the two riders pushed hard to give chase to Sykes, who had built almost a four second advantage over the pair. Five laps from the end, Chaz passed Sykes to take the lead, followed by Rea. A spectacular battle for victory ensued, and continued all the way to the line, with Davies concluding in second place, just 0.1 of a second behind Rea. A great result for the Aruba Ducati rider, who showed great tenacity on the Malaysian track.

Race 2 – another great start by Chaz put him straight into the lead at the first corner. Lap three saw him set the fastest lap of the race (2`04.707), as he worked hard to gradually build his advantage over Rea, second. Chaz maintained this advantage, of more than 2 seconds, for almost the entire race, having to defend himself from Rea only in the final three laps when his rear tyre lost grip and the Northern Irish rider began to close in, reaching him on the final lap. Despite contact between the pair through the very last corner, it was Davies who crossed the line first, scoring his third win in the last four races, and his fourth win of the 2015 championship.

This means that after ten World Superbike rounds, and having earned 45 points at Sepang, Davies moves into second position in the overall standings, with 308 points, while Ducati continues to lie second in the manufacturer`s standings with 363 points.
