Davies wins Race 2 at Lausitsring

Aruba Ducati rider Chaz Davies made it two WorldSBK wins at the Lausitsring when he won Race 2 in Germany on Sunday.

Davies passed reigning world champion Jonathan Rea on his Kawasaki at half distance and managed to hold him off for a one-second lead to claim his second victory of the weekend after winning Race 1 on Saturday.

Rea came in second to increase his lead in the rider standings while coming in to grab third place was Davies' teammate Marco Melandri. 

Tom Sykes drops to 70 points behind Rea when he came in fourth after taking too much time to get past the likes of Fores, Lorenzo Savadori and Leon Camier.

Closing out the top ten were – Jordi Torres(Althea BMW Racing Team), Markus Reiterberger(Van Zon Remeha BMW) and taking tenth place was Javier Fores of Ducati's BARNI Racing Team.
