After two crashes in qualifying, Australian Matt Davies started the final race of the UEM European Superstock Championship in 25th but after a usual lightning start he soon found himself inside the top 20.
By half distance Matt had joined the battle for 12th but unfortunately a small problem prevented him from climbing any higher up the order and he had to settle for 15th at the flag.
The result was a solid one and Matt can now look forward to competing on a Supersport machine in a support race at the Australian Moto GP later in the year.
