Second place for Davide Giugliano in Race 1 in Donington, a crash forces Davies to retire

160530_03

The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team further extended its podium streak with Davide Giugliano’s second place in WorldSBK Race 1 in Donington (U.K.). Chaz Davies, who took the “holeshot” to lead the race in the early phases, was unfortunately forced to retire for the first time this year due to a double crash.

Davies and Giugliano quickly took first and second position at the start of the race and set the pace after taking the second and fifth spot on the grid in Superpole. During the sixth lap, a low-speed crash in the final corner caused Davies to lose ground and rejoin the race in 16th position with Giugliano taking the lead. The Italian progressively pulled away from the pack together with Sykes, leading the race until six laps to go and finishing in second place to seal his second consecutive podium after Race 2 in Malaysia. Davies, who fiercely climbed back through the field until he reached ninth position, unluckily crashed again at turn 8, this time without being able to rejoin the race. The Welshman is still second in the championship with 215 points while Giugliano moves up to fourth with 138 points. Race 2 is scheduled for 3 p.m. local time (CET -1) tomorrow.
