Triple WorldSBK Championship runner-up Chaz Davies looks set to make a return to full-time international racing.

The Presteigne-raised star is set to feature as part of Racing’s brand-new MotoE World Championship effort.

The Welshman has maintained a close working relationship with Feel Racing - which competes under the Racing banner as Ducati’s factory team partner - in the two years since announcing his retirement at the end of the 2021 WorldSBK season.

Now employed as Racing’s rider coach, Davies’ behind-the-scenes role is a continuation of a relationship with the Italian team that spanned seven seasons between 2014 and 2020 and yielded 28 WorldSBK victories.


After being ousted from his factory Ducati seat by Michael Ruben Rinaldi at the conclusion of the 2020 WorldSBK season, Davies switched to the satellite Go Eleven Ducati team in 2021 but would go on to endure a season dogged by injury.

As a result, Davies made the decision to call time on his career, citing those injury frustrations as his reason.

Despite this, the 36-year old has remained race fit since then with occasional outings on the ERC Endurance Ducati team in the Endurance World Championship.

Though the team has not confirmed its rider entries for 2024 as yet, Racing is listed as one of three MotoE teams boasting new management structures this season - together with Trackhouse Racing (formerly RNF Racing) and MT Helmets - MSi (formerly Pons) - having acquired the slots held by Pramac Racing.

If Davies is selected he would become only the second British rider to compete in the all-electric series - which started in 2019 after Bradley Smith and mark his first Grand Prix outing in 17 years.
