I personally think he is Britain's most convincing future world champion and I base that on the fact that I think he is our best racer.

Has anyone ever noticed that Davies often finishes well up on his starting positions? He only qualified 10th at the Nurburgring, but won a race from there. His podiums at Aragon and Moscow were also achieved from lowly starting points.

His best grid position is eighth and he has only started inside the top ten on three occasions. Yet he has 11 top seven finishes...

On the one hand, you could say Davies needs to improve his qualifying (he wasn't great at that in WSS either), but he is always moving forward in the races! That's the sign of a true champion in my opinion.

Top bloke and fully deserves it. Agree with Boo. Looks to be our best bet for the future in all aspects. Think he should stay in WSBK and win the title but also to see what happens to Moto GP before shooting off there. WSBK could easily become the premier championship the way things are going. Having said that, Chaz has been through the Moto GP system and would be fully prepared. Good luck Chaz and keep up the brilliant work.

POst AMA Chaz has been faultless in his world stage comeback.

On the Triumph 675 he mixed it with well established teams and surely boosted the 675 sales with his performance on it.

Got Cals 2 year old bike at the last minute and took the championship.

Got A Ducati this year then got an Aprilia then done is arm,no testing and no history for the team with the bike.

Well done Chaz for the win also well done to Parkingo for giving him the team and equipment to do the job.

And to think Yamaha refused Parkingo's bid to run the R1's this year as they did not think they were up to the job and would be bad for their corporate image.

Despite unequal tech rules WSK should still be lauded as the one top-flight series where a private team can win a race. And what a race, congrats to Davies and the ParkinGO team!
