Chaz Davies says he's left frustrated by Donington Park and calls his home track his 'bogey circuit' after putting his Ducati bike sixth on the grid.

The Welsh rider is confident his race pace is strong and consistent enough to challenge for rostrum places at the British round of the 2015 World Superbike championship but feels he is always trying to adapt to the demands of the Leicestershire circuit.

"Although Donington is my home race I class it as my bogey circuit," Davies said. "Everybody has one but annoyingly this one is mine.

"It is one of those tracks where I have to work really, really hard to stay on the pace and pay a lot of attention to detail on my riding style."

Davies' record in World Superbikes at Donington back up his suspicions. Last year Davies recorded his best results at his home event with two fifth place finishes, whereas the Welshman has scored a podium at almost every regular World Superbike circuit since joining the series in 2012. The 28-year-old has also finished second at Donington on his way to the World Supersport title in 2011.

"Every year I've come here I've got a little bit better and got more comfortable but I feel I'm just missing that little bit," he added. "We are not too far away, race pace-wise."
