Race Predicitons:

We come into this round off a dominant weekend for Chaz Davies who obliterated everyone at Aragon winning both races comfortably. Johnny Rea and Tom Sykes completed the podiums swapping positions in race 2 with Rea finishing 2nd and Sykes 3rd in race 1. Michael Van Der Mark will be hoping for a much better weekend in front of his home fans it was at this round last season that he managed to get his first WSBK podium position with a 3rd place finish in race 1 and repeated this in race 2.
