Davies, the record man: “Wins are special, but we’ll work on consistency”


Eleven wins, 10 fastest laps – both a record in the 2016 WorldSBK championship – and 17 podiums in 26 races overall were not enough to satisfy Chaz Davies’ hunger for success. The Welshman was undoubtedly a protagonist in the past season, closed with 7 wins (six of which came consecutively) out of the last 8 races. Still, he’s hunting for more.

The Italian moved his first steps on a minibike when he was 4 and then fulfilled his dream to become a professional rider to compete for 18 consecutive seasons on the world stage between MotoGP and WorldSBK. All except for the last one, the longest of his career. But now Melandri is ready for a new start.
