Althea Aprilia's Davide Giugliano is relishing the opportunity to end the 2013 World Superbike Championship at Jerez.

Giugliano rode the RSV4 at the Spanish circuit for the first time last November and was quickly on the pace.

The Italian, sixth in the championship standings but only nine points ahead of Pata Honda's Michel Fabrizio, has been in impressive form in recent rounds and hopes to carry his momentum into the final two races of the year.

"I'm pleased to be able to finish my 2013 season in Jerez, a track that I really like and where I rode the RSV4 Aprilia for the first time last November," he said.

"On that occasion I was immediately fast and hope that I can do likewise this time, although it won't be easy to fight at the front, with riders who are still battling it out for the title.

"This is a positive moment for us and I hope it continues at Jerez too, because I really want to conclude the season in the best way possible, as a way of thanking my team and all those who believed in me."
