CHAZ Davies bids to kickstart his World Superbike Championship (WSBK) campaign in Thailand this weekend.

The Presteigne star struggled in the season opener at Phillip Island in Australia but will take on the Buriram circuit confident of improved fortunes aboard his racing Ducati.

Davies said: “I’m going into Thailand knowing the bike much better than what I did when I turned up at Phillip Island.

“We had a win and a third place last year which were good results so it shows we’ve got pace there, it’s just a matter of getting the bike in the ballpark.”
