CHAZ Davies passed the chequered flag for the final time in his World Superbike career in Indonesia on the weekend.

The Presteigne star called time on his career which saw him collate 99 podiums and go down as one of the modern day greats of the sport.

Sadly Davies could not toast a ton of podiums and instead finished eighth and 12th at the Mandalika circuit with Toprak Razgatlioglu being crowned world champion.

The Team Go Eleven rider said: "The first race I was quite happy with, I felt Ok on the bike, I was quite fast especially on the beginning of the race, I was catching the front group.

"Then when the track dried I lost a bit, but I was happy with eighth.

"Then the second race, in the rain here is really high grip, I felt a bit strange during the race to be honest. I was really motivated to try to finish well, but after the delay I didn’t feel particularly normal.

"Maybe it’s to be expected, I try to tell myself a few times 'Just enjoy it' but anyway it’s like this.

"Thanks to everybody for the support, to the guys, to the Team Go Eleven for supporting me so much this year, bringing me in like a family.

"It has been a difficult season, but I really enjoy the time in the garage and myself in general."

Davies is now looking ahead to retirement and reflected on a stellar career.

He said: "It has been a great career and looking back it means satisfaction. I wish the maximum respect to all my competitors, congratulations to Toprak for the championship, he did such an amazing job this season, and to Yamaha also. I hope to be back here in future, but obviously not on the bike.”
