Chaz Davies To Test Ducati Next Week

Roadracing World is today confirming the rumors prior to Misano that Chaz Davies will test for Ducati. The official test is scheduled to take place next week at Mugello (sadly, about a week before I am due to visit the place), and Davies will be testing alongside Ducati's official test rider Vittoriano Guareschi. The test is widely being regarded as an audition for one of the seats at the Pramac d'Antin team for 2008, the other likely to go to Frenchman Sylvain Guintoli. Davies is currently riding for the Celtic Yamaha team in AMA Supersport and Formula Xtreme, and has no firm contract commitments for next year. There had been some talk of moving up to Superbikes with the factory Yamaha program, but with Yamaha believed to be scaling its AMA Superbike program down next year, there may not be a ride for Davies to go to.
