Scott takes sixth in #CatalanWorldSBK race 2
The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team celebrates its fifth victory in the 2020 WorldSBK season thanks to the sensational performance of Chaz Davies. Scott Redding, however, can’t find the right feeling with his Ducati Panigale V4 R and closes Race-2 in sixth place.
Following a difficult Superpole Race (P8) Scott Redding tries to push to the top, managing to engage in a duel with Rea (Kawasaki) between the sixth and tenth lap. His race pace, however, does not allow him to reduce the gap with the leading group and forces him to finish the race in sixth position.
Despite this result, Scott Redding (239 points) is still in the race for the Superbike World Championship even if, two rounds from the end, his gap from Jonathan Rea is now 51 points.

“It was a very difficult Sunday for me. Both in Superpole Race and Race-2 I had some problems, especially in braking areas. This limited me a lot because I was never able to find the right pace to be competitive. It’s a shame: I expected to do well today. This is a bad result for the World Championship standings but I will not give up now. It is clear, however, that we will have to work hard to have a bike that performs as well as it did two months ago”.
