Giugliano tops the timesheets to end two-day Aragon test on a high

Giugliano tops the timesheets to end two-day Aragon test on a high | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

The second and last day of private testing at Alcaniz’s MotorLand Aragon was held in sunny and warm conditions that allowed all riders to continue with their on-track duties and data gathering. The rider to set the quickest time of the second day was Davide Giugliano (Ducati Superbike Team) who clocked a 1’50.2s to end the two-day test on a high note following a further 49 laps completed on the Spanish track. It was a similar outcome for the other factory Ducati rider Chaz Davies, who says he is really happy at how the 2015 version of the 1199 Panigale R is working despite the differences to last year’s machine. The Welshman was only 0.3s slower than his teammate today.
