GoEleven Ducati’s Chaz Davies is still not 100 per cent recovered from the shoulder injury he sustained at Misano’s WorldSBK round but is still aiming for podiums at Assen this weekend.

Davies pointed his works-supported Panigale V4R in the right direction in terms of setup at Donington Park, taking 16 points away from the weekend but is anxious to return to the podium.

“It’s nice to be back here in Assen, after not coming here last year. It’s a fun circuit, I think that a lot of people enjoy it. A recent memory of Assen was a strange 2019, because we had such strange conditions, snowing and really cold,” said Davies.T

“This weekend will be a lot different, I am optimistic to have a solid weekend. I feel a little bit better than I did in Donington with the shoulder, but I am still not 100 per cent.

“Anyway I am confident that I should feel better on the bike. We will try to bring home the best result possible, and that’s if not on, near the podium.”
