The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team put on a show during Race 2 of the WorldSBK championship in Laguna Seca (USA). Davide Giugliano and Chaz Davies, together with Tom Sykes, engaged in a thrilling, fair battle in what turned into one of the most memorable races in recent times. At the end of a long series of passes, Giugliano finished in second position with Davies right behind him.

The Italian got off a strong start, taking the lead during lap 3 before the race was red flagged. At the restart, being first on the grid, Giugliano stayed at the front initially, while Davies climbed back from seventh position after being stuck in the group. The pair reconnected in the final phases of the race, putting up a spectacular duel in the last seven laps and exhanging positions several times before finishing second and third respectively, separated by only five tenths of a second.

After nine rounds, Davies and Giugliano are respectively third (260 points) and fourth (185 points) in the championship, while Ducati is second in the Manufacturers standings with 326 points. The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will now observe a long break, during which development will continue with a detailed testing schedule, and will resume action in Lausitzring (Germany) on September 16-18 for the tenth round of the season.
