Difficult weather for Davies debut

Team principal Serafino Foti added: “Our riders did different jobs: Marco tried some new components to improve the bike, but unfortunately it was impossible to evaluate all available material.

“For Chaz it was the first test with the BMW family. He used it to become familiar with his RR and to find the right settings and riding position for the bike.

“We hope to have better conditions at the next tests, because it is very important to keep up with our work programme.

“Regardless, the test was good for consolidating the new team structure. All the guys have done a great job and there was a positive and confident atmosphere in our garage. We are very motivated to start the new season.”

BMW Italia has become the official S1000RR team following the closure of the factory squad.

I'm pleased for Chas. While so many riders have had a relatively easy run to truly competitive, well-funded teams, Chas Davies has had to work his backside off and prove his ability over and over again to get this chance. Chas has got the best out of every ride he's had, but his efforts have never got him the breaks he's deserved. It's only recently with the Supersport Yamaha's and the Pata Aprilia ride that (finally) people have sat up and taken notice of just how good he is. I wish Chas luck at BMW and hope that he is able once again to gel with yet another bike successfully and mix it up front in 2013.

Its good to see Chaz on a top bike in WSB. He has shown he is a very talented rider with a great attitude, good set-up skills and a strong competitive streak. I think he is a better rider than Leon Haslam and that after a short while he will be a real title contender.
