Aprilia RSV1000R Destroyed at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California
The Factory Aprilia Millennium Technologies Team scored a fourth place finish in the Daytona SportBike race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.

Team Rider Chaz Davies and Ben Thompson rode the Aprilia RSV1000Rs in what could be considered most difficult weekend of their AMA season. As Davies took fourth, Thompson crashed in both races at Infineon.

“Despite all the challenges, we’re hoping to build on this performance,” said Spalding. “We use K&N products on everything we build.

do the job of protecting our engines from dirt and track debris.”
Davis was fast from the beginning of the weekend. He qualified in Superpole in the third position with a time of 1:40.010. Thompson made steady progress during the first qualifying run, but crashed out early and had to start from the eighteenth position.
At the start of race one Thompson crashed and destroyed his Aprilia RSV100R. Fortunately, Thompson was un-injured. Davies missed the first lap incident and was running in the front with the lead group. Davies spent most of the race in third place, but was passed with a handful of laps to go. This is Factory Aprilia’s second top five in a row.
The Millennium Technologies sponsored Aprilia team worked to repair Thompson’s damaged RSV100R and at the same time come up with a solution to get Davies to the podium. On Sunday Davies turned the fastest lap of the race. Unfortunately on lap six Davies’ Aprilia RSV1000R overheated and he had to pull out of the race. Thompson was taken out by another rider.
“It was a bad weekend,” said Thompson. “This was only my second time at Infineon and we made some mistakes early, but we really started making some progress by Saturday. Just when we started to get some momentum, we ended up in the dirt.”
“Although the weekend didn’t end the way we wanted, it was very encouraging that the bike worked as well as it did at this track,” said Davies. “Infineon is a very tight track that rewards a nimble lightweight bike. Our team did a great job of making our Aprilia RSV100R’s competitive there.”
The AMA SportBike Series continues at Road America.
