Starting from third row, Chaz bided his time early on, then took the lead with five laps to go and never looked back, taking the 7th win of his career at Aragon and second of the season.
The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team and the Aruba.it Racing – Junior Team will resume action next weekend at Assen (Netherlands) for the fourth round, scheduled for April 20-22.
Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati #7) – 1st
“I had to really work hard for this win, coming from 8th place on the grid. I knew we could pull through, but in the first few laps I didn’t have the feeling I was hoping for. We opted for a softer rear tire and I was expecting to have more stability, but the rear kept spinning a bit so I stayed patient without trying to force my way through. Then, I made some passes and found myself in a good position to ride my own race. I’m really, really happy to have sealed my 7th win here at Aragon. Thanks to the whole team and Ducati. I can’t wait to race again next weekend in Assen.”
