Chaz makes it a double podium at Laguna Seca
The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team stepped on the podium once again in Race 2 at Laguna Seca (United States), home of the eighth round of the WorldSBK Championship, with yet another second-place finish by Chaz Davies.
Chaz started strong from third row, immediately recovering positions. After some hectic early laps, also due to the track’s layout that makes it difficult to pass, Davies found his pace and managed to climb back to second position, mirroring Race 1’s result.
The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will be back on track at Misano (Italy) for the ninth round of the 2018 WorldSBK Championship, scheduled for July 6-8.
Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati #7) – 2nd
“All in all, we can be happy with this round. The goal is always to win, but it’s good to be back at the front and I feel we got the best out of myself and the package this weekend. We’re back at the sharp end after a couple of tough rounds. We’re not too far away from our main rivals, we just need to fine tune some details. Today I got a good start but, to be honest, I was twitching a bit with the front in the early laps and I wasn’t even pushing that hard. Then things leveled down, I got into my rhythm and climbed back to second. We’ve made strides in the areas in which we’ve been struggling recently, so we just have to go to Misano and see if we can polish up those final details.”
