Chaz takes second heroic fourth at Portimao in spite of shoulder injury
Chaz Davies, who already dazzled this weekend’s Portimao crowd with a brave comeback from 15th position Saturday, was once again fourth after leading the race for 11 laps despite an injured right shoulder.
Chaz and the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will be back on track at Magny Cours (France) for the 11th round of the 2018 WorldSBK Championship, scheduled for September 28-30.

“This was one of the most challenging rounds in my career, for sure. Portimão is one of the most physical tracks on the calendar and I haven’t been able to train properly for a long time, not to mention the pain in the right shoulder. Honestly, if somebody would have told me that I would get P4 twice here, I wouldn’t have believed it. Big thanks to my guys because we’ve made strides with the package through the weekend and we ended up actually quite close to the winners. Now we’ve got a few days to train and rehab ahead of Magny Cours to kickstart the final part of the season. I’m looking forward to the next race.”
