Davies and the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team score their fifth SBK win of the season!

Jerez de la Frontera (Spain), Sunday 20 September 2015 – fantastic results for Chaz Davies and the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team in the Jerez World Superbike races; having reached the podium in race 1, in second position, the Welshman put together a faultless race 2 to achieve his fifth win of the season! Michele Pirro completed two good races, crossing the line in sixth and seventh place.

Race 1 – from sixth on the grid, Davies got away very well, moving straight into third place. Chasing down the Kawasakis ahead of him, the Welshman reached and passed Rea on lap seven to take second position. In the second half of the race Chaz was able to increase his pace but unfortunately it was not enough to reach race leader Sykes, meaning that the Aruba Ducati man crossed the line in second position.

Pirro, seventh on the grid, held that position throughout the opening laps. In the first half of the race, the Italian struggled to close in on his rivals on the new tyre but, thanks to a significantly quicker pace in the second phase, he caught up to Haslam and Rea, immediately ahead of him, to cross the line in sixth position.

Race 2 – once again Chaz quickly got into a good rhythm and was lying second through the opening stages. He did well to fight off the advances of the chasing pack and, thanks to his extremely strong pace, was able to pass Sykes to move into the lead on lap eleven. Gradually increasing his lead while effectively managing the final phase of the race, the Aruba Ducati man crossed the line in first place, with an advantage of almost two seconds. This marks his fifth win of the 2015 season, thanks to which he consolidates second position in the overall standings.
For Pirro, the second race was more difficult. In order to prevent the front of the bike from moving around so much, a harder front tyre was selected for this second race but unfortunately this resulted in a more dramatic loss of grip in the afternoon`s higher temperatures. Michele nevertheless maintained a constant pace which allowed him to conclude in seventh position.

With only two rounds left to run, Chaz Davies continues to hold second position in the overall standings, with 353 points, while Michele Pirro has earned points enough (35) to place twentieth. Ducati maintains second position in the manufacturer`s standings with 408 points.
