[DUCATI]SBK Rd.12 Chaz Davies does the double again at Jerez, Davide Giugliano finishes Race 2 in 13th position


After taking the top step of podium in Race 1, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team did the double in Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) with Chaz Davies. The Welshman rider thus seized his fourth win in a row and ninth of the season – tied with championship leader Rea – to maintain the momentum that saw him win five out of six races after the summer break.

Thanks to a blistering start from sixth position on the grid, Davies entered turn 1 in second place and soon after took the lead and adopted the same strategy as in Race 1, progressively building a gap with an unequaled pace. To underscore his masterful performance, he also set the fastest lap with a 1:41.492.

Davide Giugliano, on the other hand, faced an uphill race as he was forced to play defense due to the less than optimal conditions of his injured right shoulder. The Italian rider, after losing positions in the early phases, did not give up despite the pain and some grip issues to finish in 13th position.

After twelve rounds, Davies and Giugliano are respectively third (395 points) and sixth (197 points) in the general standings. The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will be back in action under floodlights in Losail for the final round of the season, scheduled for October 28-30.
