[DUCATI]SBK Rd.12 Chaz Davies extends his winning streak in Race 1 at Jerez, Davide Giugliano forced to retire
The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team claimed the top step of the podium in Race 1 at Jerez de la Frontera, home of the penultimate round of the 2016 WorldSBK championship, thanks to another spectacular win by Chaz Davies.
The Welshman, who has won four out of the last five races, confirmed his top form to claim his 8th win of the year. Davide Giugliano, back on track after skipping the races in Magny-Cours due to a right-shoulder injury, crashed out in the early phases without physical consequences.
Starting from second row after finishing Superpole in sixth position, Davies quickly stormed back through the field to claim the lead in lap 4. Imposing an unmatchable pace, below the 1:42 mark for half the race, the Welshman gradually built a gap from the rivals, led by Sykes, and crossed the finish line with more than three seconds of advantage.
Giugliano, on the other hand, faced a difficult day. Despite a strong performance during Superpole, closed in third position, the Italian was hindered by braking issues since the start and crashed out from seventh position at the beginning of lap 2. Fortunately, the fall did not worsen the conditions of Giugliano’s right shoulder and the Italian rider is eager to bounce back in Race 2 tomorrow.
Action will resume at 09:25 (CET) Sunday for the warm-up session ahead of Race 2 at 13:00.
