Aruba Ducati’s Chaz Davies says that finding a setup at Laguna Seca is always difficult as the Californian WorldSBK track needs stability and agility.

Davies, who has won three races at Laguna in the last three years, needs a big result this weekend to claw back some of the 65 points he is behind Jonathan Rea in the championship stakes - and really needs the Kawasaki man to have a bad weekend.

“Competing at Laguna Seca is always a fun challenge. It’s a tough track, with a lot of technical parts to it. Camber and elevation change quite a lot, there are fast corners and hairpins, and obviously the ‘Corkscrew’ itself,” said Davies.

“It’s hard to set the bike up right, because you want stability but also agility, so you need to find a good compromise. I think it suits my style, I really enjoy riding there and I’m looking forward to getting back on the Panigale R to build on what we found at Brno and aim for even better results.”
