Erratic weather conditions shuffled things up during WorldSBK’s Race 2 in Assen, which was declared wet and began on an extremely slippery tarmac, but unfolded almost entirely under the sun. All riders were thus forced to pit-in and change tyres. Davies, despite having a strong pace in the dry, had to settle for 5th place. Giugliano, who showed a better performance in the wet, finished in 8th position.

The race started in wet conditions but the sun quickly dried up the track, favoring many passes within the lead group, which included Davies and Giugliano. The Italian was among the first to come back into the pits to switch to slick tyres, during lap 10. Three laps later, it was Davies’ turn.

After the pit-stop, Giugliano initially struggled with front-tyre feeling but progressively gained momentum, while Davies found the right pace more easily but was simply too far from the leading pair formed by Rea and Sykes, who made the most of an early pit-stop. Davies thus finished the race in 5th position, Giugliano in 8th. The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will be back on track in two weeks’ time in Imola.
