About

Chaz Davies landed in the premier class of the World Superbike after winning the Supersport World Championship in 2011, a result of his extensive previous experience in different categories and championships. His career in racing dates back to 1999 when he debuted on a minimoto. Before reaching the World Superbike Championship, he has raced for one season in the 125cc World Championship, four in the 250cc and one in MotoGP in addition to competing in the AMA Supersport Championship.

Since 2012, Davies has had continuous progression through the ranking in WorldSBK. Finishing ninth in his debut campaign, the Welshman finished the following season in the 5th position overall on a BMW. In 2014 he moved to Ducati and took sixth position in the standings. But it has been in the last two seasons that the Knighton rider (Wales, UK) has become one of the main protagonists of the Championship and a real contender for the title. In 2015 he secured the runner-up spot after winning five races and securing a total of 18 podiums, surpassed only by an intractable Rea. In 2016 he improved dramatically; he won 11 races, stepped onto the podium 16 times and took the fastest lap in 10 races. This performance makes him one of the great contenders for the 2017 crown in his fourth season with Aruba .it Racing-Ducati.
