Chaz previews Aragon WorldSBK round
After starting the season with two overseas rounds, in Australia and Thailand respectively, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team is ready to return to Europe for the third round of the 2017 WorldSBK Championship at Aragon (Spain).
The track on the outskirts of Alcañiz evokes good memories for the team, who with Chaz Davies collected three wins and one second-place finish in the last couple of seasons.
After two rounds, Chaz (70 points) and teammate Marco Melandri (45 points) are respectively second and fifth in the overall rankings. The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will resume action on Friday, March 31st, at 09:45 (CET) for the first free-practice session.

“I’m looking forward to get back to racing in Europe. In a way, things kind of reset at this point and the season gets in full swing. The first two rounds are always a bit different. Aragon is a track I’ve always had good success at, for one reason or another, but of course we still want to improve and take the next steps forward. This round represents an important chance for us to establish our base for the rest of the season and sort of see where we’re really at. Anyway, we’re in a lot better position compared with last year in terms of points collected. It was disappointing to crash like that in Race 2 in Thailand; it’s strange how it unfolded but we also got lucky with the red flags. We’re second in the championship, but of course we want to finish in better positions.”
