Scott closes 2020 with excellent P2 at #EstorilWorldSBK
The last race of the 2020 WorldSBK season gave a great emotion to the Aruba.it – Racing Ducati team that won for the first time the title in the team classification (introduced in 2011) thanks to the third extraordinary one-two of the season for Chaz Davies (P1) and Scott Redding (P2).
After a stunning comeback in the Superpole Race (from P22 to P6), Scott Redding pushed hard in the early laps and immediately chased the podium group, putting pressure on Rea (Kawasaki) who crashed on lap nine. Halfway through the race the gap with Razgatlioglu was 2 and a half seconds but Scott kept pushing and with five laps to go he attacked the Turkish rider to take second place.
Scott Redding ends the 2020 WorldSBK season in second place while Chaz Davies finishes third. In the manufacturers’ standings, Ducati finishes second, just one point behind Kawasaki.

“I am extremely happy with this result. It was not an easy race for me. In the first laps, I had some problems and I couldn’t be fast. However, I remained concentrated and from the middle of the race, the feeling grew and allowed me to push hard to get Toprak. I think it’s a great season finale for us and I’m happy to have shared the podium with Chaz. We did a great job this season and I want to thank Ducati for putting me in a position to fight for the title. I can say that the second place in the first year in Superbike is an acceptable result but we will have to do better next season. Thanks to the whole Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team for the great support and the extraordinary work of these months. Grazie Ragazzi!”
