Third place for Chaz Davies in Race 2 at Donington, Giugliano 7th

160530_04

After taking second position with Davide Giugliano in Race 1, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team stepped on the podium once again in Donington (U.K.) with Chaz Davies, who finished Race 2 in third position. A result that partially comforts the Welsh rider and shows his resilience after the difficulties encountered on Friday and Saturday. Giugliano, on the other hand, faced an opposite fate and, after barely missing the victory in Race 1, was unfortunately forced to play defense due to some unexpected grip issues, whose cause is yet to be determined.

Taking second and fourth position respectively after a positive start, Davies and Giugliano fought from the early phases of the race to match the pace of the leading couple composed by Sykes and Rea. The Welshman showed significant progress compared with the previous days, managing to set his pace in the low 1:28 mark and holding third position until the checkered flag. Giugliano was hindered by some unforeseen problems instead, mostly under braking, which prevented him from showing his previous competitiveness and caused him to struggle and finish in seventh position.

After seven rounds, Davies (231 points) and Giugliano (147 points) occupy third and fourth position in the championship respectively, while Ducati is second in the Manufacturers standings with 268 points. The WorldSBK championship will resume action the weekend of June 17-19 in Misano for the eighth round, in preparation of which the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will have a two-day test on the Italian track next Tuesday and Wednesday.
