Chaz Davies gave the British fans braving the conditions at Donington Park something to smile about by topping a quiet first free practice session around his home venue.

The BMW GoldBet rider was one of just five riders to complete a lap time, circulating the slippery circuit in 1min 53.943secs, more than 25 seconds down on the lap record.

He was joined on track by Niccolo Canepa – riding a third Alstare Ducati this weekend -, Max Neukirchner, Vittorio Iannuzzo and Carlos Checa, who completed the depleted timesheets.

With riders tackling the circuit tentatively, only one rider would suffer in the conditions with Davide Giugliano enduring a low speed tumble at Melbourne hairpin.
