The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team seized the top step of the podium in Race 1 in Imola, the “home” track for the Borgo Panigale manufacturer and a favorite destination today for the many Ducati fans who cheered the riders in the paddock and the grandstands. Davies led the race from the first until the last corner after topping all previous sessions between practice and qualifying, taking the “holeshot” from pole position and the first, historic victory for the Panigale R in Italy.

Davies also posted the fastest lap of the race (rewriting the circuit record) with a blistering 1:46.700 during lap 3, pulling away from the group together with championship leader Jonathan Rea. During lap 8, a mistake by his rival in turn 7 allowed Davies to gain a five-second advantage, a margin he comfortably administered until the checkered flag.

Davide Giugliano, after fighting his way back from ninth place to take second position in Superpole, confirmed the progress made in terms of pace, finishing the race in fifth position despite a drop in the performance of his bike due to the detachment of an exhaust collector after a gear shift. Both riders will be back on track for Race 2, scheduled for 13:00 (CET) tomorrow.
