[DUCATI]SBK Rd.10 Sixth place for Chaz Davies in a wet Race 2 at EuroSpeedway Lausitz
After a superb victory in Race 1 with Chaz Davies, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team faced a difficult Sunday at EuroSpeedway Lausitz (Germany).
A sudden change in weather conditions, from dry to wet, mixed things up. In an unpredictable Race 2, Chaz Davies finished in sixth place while Davide Giugliano was forced to retire due to a crash.
With the start delayed twice due to track conditions, Race 2 was reduced to 16 laps. Giugliano was quick out of the blocks, climbing back to second position despite starting from third row.
After posting the provisional best lap, however, the Italian crashed out at turn 9 during lap 4. Upon medical examination, Giugliano was diagnosed with a suspected fracture in the right shoulder blade, which will be further examined upon his return to Italy on Monday.
Davies seemed to have a strong chance to seal another win after posting the fastest lap in the dry during warm-up, but was penalized by the adverse weather.
The Welshman fought tenaciously in the second group, controlling the everchanging track conditions and progressively improving his pace to cross the finish line in sixth place, a result that solidifies his position in the championship.
After ten rounds, Davies and Giugliano are in third (295 points) and sixth (194 points) position respectively in the general standings. The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will resume action on September 30 in Magny Cours (France) for the eleventh round of the season.
