Davide Giugliano heads to the eighth round of the 2012 World Superbike Championship at Motorland Aragon keen to build on a strong showing at Misano that yielded a second podium of the season.

The series rookie has been impressive on the Althea Ducati since graduating to the premier Superbike championship this year, notching up podiums at Assen and Misano to move him comfortably inside the top ten overall.

Indeed, having led a WSBK race for the first time in his burgeoning career, Misano represented Giugliano's most competitive weekend yet, momentum he is keen to continue in Spain.

"I enjoyed racing at Aragon last year when I won the Stock 1000 race, and I hope to make two more solid races this weekend with the Superbike. I like the track, though there's a long straight that will penalise us.

"We carried out some testing during WDW, in hot conditions similar to what we'll probably see in Aragon, and so I think I'm pretty prepared for the race."
