2016 Jerez World Superbike Race 1 Notes - A Sign of What Awaits for 2017

Chaz Davies continued his dominant run of form in WorldSBK by winning at Jerez. The Welshman waltzed to his fifth win in the last six races and once again showed just how strong he has become in 2016.

The package of Davies and the Ducati has consistently been to the fore this season and a constant thorn in the side of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes. If not for a mid-season blip that saw him score just 46 points from a possible 150 Davies would be in firm title contention but that run of form ruled him out of proceedings.
