[DUCATI]SBK Rd.11 Brilliant win for Chaz Davies in Race 1 at Magny-Cours, right-shoulder issues stop Davide Giugliano

161003_09

The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team took its sixth win of the season in Magny-Cours (France), home of the third-to-last round of the WorldSBK championship, thanks to Chaz Davies’ triumph in Race 1. Davide Giugliano was declared unfit to race after a crash during Superpole 1, which aggravated his right-shoulder injury.

With a wet track at the start of the race, Chaz Davies (who finished Superpole in third position) opted for intermediate tyres. The Welshman’s choice was nonconformist, as most riders chose wet compounds, but eventually proved to be the most ideal.

Davies had to play defense early on as the track was slippery, and was momentarily pushed out of the top ten, but soon mounted an incredible comeback that – as his opponents were forced to pit-in – saw him win with a ten-second advantage. It was Davies’ sixth victory of the year, a personal record.

Davide Giugliano showed his grit to head out on track for FP3 and Superpole 1 despite the pain in his right shoulder. After crashing out during his first qualifying lap, the Italian resumed action to post the 13th best time but, since the conditions of his shoulder worsened, was eventually declared unfit to race. He will thus return to Italy to undergo further treatment before the next round.

Track action will resume at 09:25 (CET) Sunday for a 15-minute warm-up session ahead of Race 2, which is scheduled to start at 13:00.
