[DUCATI]SBK Rd.9 Tough Race 1 for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team in Laguna Seca

160711_02

After having shown great competitiveness both during free practice and Superpole with its riders, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team did not achieve the results it hoped for in Race 1 of the WorldSBK championship in Laguna Seca (USA). Both Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano unfortunately crashed out while fighting for the podium in the leading group and were forced to retire.

Davies started off strong from fourth position on the grid, quickly moving up the ranks to take the lead in the beginning of lap 5, after posting the fastest lap with a 1:23.443. Unluckily, the Welshman lost the front shortly after, entering turn 6. Giugliano, who scored first row during Superpole with the third-best time, looked comfortable while chasing Rea and Sykes, showing a pace identical to that of the leading pair. During lap 14, however, the Italian crashed while changing direction at turn 8, better known as the Corkscrew.

Both riders, who did not suffer injuries, could not rejoin the race but will have a chance to bounce back in Race 2, scheduled for 14:30 local time (CET -9) on Sunday.
