What a Sunday in Donington Park! Once again, the English weather wanted to be protagonist, messing up the plans of the Team and the riders. Go Eleven gets the most out of this track, considering the physical condition of the rider and gets back fighting for the top positions.
P 7 C. Davies + 16 .684
We cannot be too much happy for a seventh place, but considering the physical conditions, it is a great result that pushes the Team for the continuation of the season. In three weeks, it will be time for the fifth round of the season, in the Netherlands, TT-Circuit Assen, July 23-25!
Chaz Davies (Rider):
"I am really happy with Race 2. I felt physically better on the bike, still struggling, but definitively, at least, had enough to be able to fight till the end of the race, which was what it has been missing in yesterday race and a bit even in the Superpole Race this morning. I am happy with our road, I had a few comments after the race, that maybe if I was physically fit a little bit better earlier in the weekend, I would have highlighted it a bit earlier. I think we did a good job, we had a good salvage of the weekend, considering our situation. It is positive as an anticipation of Assen!"
Denis Sacchetti (Team Manager):
"From the outside, one might think that Chaz didn't have a good weekend here in England, but considering his physical condition, combined with the difficulties encountered by the Panigale on this track, he did a half business! Scoring these results, concluding the three scheduled races, battle, with a painful right shoulder, not all riders would be able to do it. Moreover, this track is perhaps one of the worst for the right arm, because it is very physical and with many right-handed curves. We come back home happy, not satisfied, but happy and motivated. The team is working well, reacting to these difficult moments is a symbol of a strong and united team!"

Rabat closes the Donington weekend and gets points
Castle Donington (UK), July 4th 2021. Barni Racing Team and Tito Rabat finish the weekend in Donington with a P14 in Race2. On an on and off raining Sunday, Rabat slid in the Superpole Race; however, he got some points in Race 2.
Marco Barnabò - Team Principal
“We had to pay a higher tribute in Donington. This circuit is not the most favorable for Ducatis. In addition, the weather’s been extremely inconsistent so we couldn’t work regularly. On top of it, Rabat’s sliding added further uncertainty. Despite the maximum commitment of our whole team, we didn’t enjoy much back. We can’t wait for this to happen”.
