Chaz Davies is hoping Magny-Cours doesn't halt his momentum in World Superbikes having taken four victories in the past six races to take control of second place in the riders' championship.

With the World Superbike title now confirmed as Jonathan Rea's the Aruba.it Ducati rider is leading the charge for the runner-up spot and holds a 22-point cushion on his nearest rival Tom Sykes.

The Welshman has thoroughly outperformed the rest of the field since Laguna Seca by taking 140 points from a maximum of 150 but is now concerned that his bogey circuit Magny-Cours may disrupt his success.

"I've never had a smooth weekend at Magny-Cours with various problems affecting results in recent years," Davies said. "But this is a different year, I have great feeling with my bike and, coming off the back of some strong results, I would hope we can do well in France too.

Davies' record at the French round of World Superbikes is somewhat underwhelming with just one top five finish since he stepped up to the premier class in 2012. Due to bike issues and the weather playing its part Davies has also retired from every race one of the French round, forcing him to battle back and rescue a result in race two.

"The weather is always a question mark of course, but I'm looking forward to the races and am planning to keep this season's momentum going right to the end," he confirmed.
