Chaz Davies has left Donington Park satisfied with his pair of third place finishes and says there was little he could do to stop the Kawasaki domination.

Both race podiums at the British round of the World Superbike championship were a carbon copy with Tom Sykes claiming victory ahead of his team-mate Jonathan Rea and Davies finishing the best of the rest.

The Welsh rider says finding a few tenths of a second in performance in the morning warm-up session was vital in notching up his best performances at his home event in World Superbikes.

"We improved the bike enough to knock off a few tenths. In the end we were consistent enough to pull back Leon (Haslam) but the green bikes were in a different league here," Davies said. "I'm really happy to be honest, Donington is what I class as my bogey track so it is nice to turn it around with a podium.

"That is as good as we could have got today, there was no beating Jonny or Tom, they were in a different category. Jonny had his moment [in race two] but we weren't too far away."

The former World Supersport champion has consolidated his fourth position in the championship standings and now moves on to circuits he is more confident at to grab race victories.
