Race two was a near repeat of race one as the Aruba.it Racing - Ducati Superbike of Davies grabbed another great start that put him straight into the lead at the first corner.
Lap three saw him set the fastest lap of the race (2‰Ûª04.707), as he worked hard to gradually build his advantage over Rea, second. Chaz maintained this advantage, of more than 2 seconds, for almost the entire race, having to defend himself from Rea only in the final three laps when his rear tyre lost grip and the Northern Irish rider began to close in, reaching him on the final lap.
Despite contact between the pair through the very last corner, it was Davies who crossed the line first, scoring his third win in the last four races, and his fourth win of the 2015 championship.
‰ÛÏRace 1 went really well, especially considering where we were yesterday, when I was thinking we‰Ûªd do well to finish top six." Davies said. "Anyway, we made some changes overnight that put us in a position to fight for the win, though we were still missing something in the last laps in terms of the grip and electronics working together.
"Then in race 2 I saw that Johnny was closing in but over the last two laps my tyre really dropped off and it took everything I had to hold him off. It was a battle to the line again, and through the last corner when we made contact I thought it was all over, but fortunately we both stayed upright and I was able to cross the line in front!
"I‰Ûªm so pleased about today‰Ûªs results, obtained at one of the most difficult tracks for us. This shows how much progress we‰Ûªve made up until now. I‰Ûªm also pleased to have moved into second place in the standings, having made up a lot of points over Tom this weekend.
"Thanks go to my whole team, the guys have done a fantastic job here! Now it‰Ûªs time to relax, and after a good holiday we‰Ûªll get back to work.‰Û
