Davies wins for Ducati

Davies led from the start to build up a big lead to get his fifth career win.

He last won a WorldSBK race at the Nurburgring in Germany in 2013. Ducati last won a World Superbike race in 2012.

In the end Davies was a full three seconds clear of Race 1 winner Jonathan Rea, who held off Leon Haslam for his sixth straight top-two finish. 

Jordi Torres scored fourth place ahead of countryman Xavi Fores. David Salom won out in a dramatic five-way battle for sixth. 

Kawasaki rider Tom Sykes was unable to finish the race after falling off his bike on lap 6 of the race when he was in fourth place.

Honda's reigning champion Sylvain Guintoli also fell at the fast turn 14 but was able to walk away uninjured like Sykes earlier.

Alex Lowes, riding a Suzuki, also ran off the track early but recovered somewhat to salvage two points with 14th position at the end.
