German WSBK: Nurburgring holds fond memories for Davies

'That was a great weekend; it was my first double podium as well in World Superbikes. So something last year seemed to click, and this year I hope for a repeat of that' - Chaz Davies
Chaz Davies is hoping for a repeat performance at the tenth round of the World Superbike Championship at the Nurburgring this weekend, where the Welshman sealed his maiden victory in the series in 2012.

Davies finished on the podium in race one at the German track last year before clinching victory in the second outing.

It was also the GoldBet BMW rider's first double podium result in the series and Davies is hopeful of more success on Sunday.

“Last year, the Nurburgring was fantastic. I was third in the first race and then I took my first win in race two,” he said.

“We had quite a hot race day and I remember that in the second race it was particularly slippery, but it seemed to suit me quite well.

“That was a great weekend; it was my first double podium as well in World Superbikes. So something last year seemed to click, and this year I hope for a repeat of that.

“The Nurburgring is a famous and tricky circuit. It is technical with many different challenges and many different styles of corners, which makes it one of the more exciting tracks,” he added.

“It always takes a while on the race weekend to become clean and to lay down the bike rubber on Friday.”
