The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team faced a difficult day in Misano (Italy). After an encouraging FP3, during which Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano posted the 2nd and 4th best time respectively, the Welshman and the Italian struggled with qualifying tyres, closing Superpole in third row. At the start of Race 1, a series of contacts forced Davies to go off the track and rejoin the race in last position. Giugliano, on the other hand, was quick off the blocks to take provisional third place.

During the second lap, however, the Italian suffered a low-speed crash in turn 14 and restarted in last position, 20 seconds behind the frontrunners. Meanwhile, Davies mounted a thrilling comeback, passing 18 riders and showing the most competitive pace to close in fourth position. Giugliano also showed resiliency, finishing in 14th position despite a damaged windshield.

The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will be resume action tomorrow for Race 2, scheduled for 13:00 local time (CET).
