Chaz Davies Nabs 3rd Place in Final 2010 World Supersport Race in Magny Cours

Chaz Davies on the #57 Attack Performance/Leo Vince/NGK/Pirelli-sponsored Kawasaki ZX-6R dives into turn 11 at Road America during practice for the AMA Formula Xtreme Series in June of 2008.
Davies signed on with the ParkinGo BE1 Triumph World Supersport team for the 2010 season and was the 'best of the rest' this season in finishing 4th in the 2010 World Supersport Championship and carding four podiums, including his fine run home to 3rd place today at the final round in Magny Cours, France. The top three finishers in the series all ran Japanese four cylinders built on the 600 inline-based platform, whereas the Triumph is a three cylinder, thusly the 'CC' advantage in the engine size department. Davies will be back with the team for the 2011 season trying to improve on his and the team's great season on the Daytona 675 Speed Triple-based machines. Good job Chaz and congrats!
Chaz Davies, who from 2007-2009 was campaigning the AMA Road Racing Series aboard Attack Performance Kawasakis and Celtic Racing Yamahas in the AMA 600 Supersport Series and the AMA Formula Xtreme Series (among others), finished a great run in the World Supersport Championship in his first full year and brought the Triumph ParkinGO BE1 team's Daytona 675-based machine home in 3rd place today at Magny Cours,France to finish out the season ranked fourth in the championship race. The always-hard charger fought through until the end to card his fourth podium of the year in the World Supersport Championship and finish the year ranked 4th in the overall championship, and what could be termed the 'best of the rest.'

With the series main protagonists running the 'more preferred' 600 inline four cylinder platform in the highly competitive series, Team ParkinGO Triumph took on the task of fielding four riders on the British marque with it's mid-size and very popular three cylinder 675CC machines. After having spent time in Europe racing various other series over the years, and being British himself, Chaz filled the bill that the team needed to stay and race up at the front in one of the world's most competitive series, and to be able to regularly bring his equipment home.
Out of 13 rounds on the season, there was only one round he failed to finish-last weekend's round in Imola. Since the third round in Valencia in early April, Chaz was able to stay in the hunt for the season and held the fourth spot firm in the championship standings throughout the rest of the year. Talk about consistency! All the while, the top three in the championship were all inline-4 mounted.

Great job Chaz and we're looking forward to seeing you back on track in the 2011 World Supersport Championship!
