Chaz Davies and Go Eleven fighting against the rain
Chaz Davies and Team Go Eleven are protagonists on the Motorland Aragon track. Free practice on Friday 21st ended in the best possible way for the Welsh rider, who set the best time in the afternoon session, after the second position set in the morning.
On Sunday 23rd Excellent fourth position obtained in the Superpole Race, other good points brought home and a perfect starting position for race 2.
For Race 2 the weather conditions are, perhaps, even more complicated. It rains until you reach the grid, after which it stops and a pale sun also comes out. Chaz and the Go Eleven team make for a risky choice, which turned out to be wrong. Rain in front, intermediate behind. Unfortunately, however, not even the time to prepare for the flag to flag and Chaz loses the front, crashing in turn 7. He gets up, goes to the pits to put on the slick tyres and returns to the track determined. Each lap is on average half a second faster than Scott Redding, who will be the winner, without right stand and rear brake, without a wing and part of the rear fairing. The consolation of Race 2 is having set the fastest lap and showing that we could have won the race!
