Chaz Davies is looking to carry his early momentum from the season opener in Australia to the new Chang International Circuit in Thailand, which hosts the second round of the 2015 World Superbike season.

The Welshman notched up back-to-back podiums at Phillip Island and feels even more motivated for the season ahead thanks to his two third place finishes.

"After the results achieved in Australia, I'm feeling even more motivated and am looking forward to getting back to work this weekend and seeing what we can do," Davies said.

The Thai round is brand new to the World Superbike championship and is a venture into the relative unknown for Davies, who has only visited the Chang International circuit once before while touring the region with his Ducati team.

It will be a fresh challenge for all the teams and riders but with the Ducati rider full of confidence ahead of Thai WSBK round he will be one of favourites to grab the maiden victory around the new circuit.

"I had the chance to visit the circuit while visiting Ducati Thailand in January this year," Davies said. "It looks like an amazing facility and a great track and I'm always keen to race at new circuits."

Davies currently sits third in the WSBK riders' standings after the first round and will once again be joined by three-time WSBK champion Troy Bayliss who will continue to fill in for the injured Davide Giugliano.
