Davies showed he was the man to beat all weekend, clinching an impressive pole position in Superpole on Saturday afternoon by nearly two tenths ahead of team mate Davide Giugliano. In such confident style, the Welshman flew off the line, building up to over a second's lead by the end of the first couple of laps by which time it was game-set-match to the former World Supersport champion.
The battle behind him for silver trophy honours was between Kawasaki team mates Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea, with Sykes coming out on top after a race long battle. Behind them Davide Giugliano and Jordi Torres rolled over the line with Alex Lowes not too far down the road in 6th, his best result of the season. His compatriot Leon Haslam fell off while battling for 5th with team mate Torres, while his replacement at Pata Honda, Sylvain Guintoli brought his CBR1000RR home in 7th ahead of team mate Michael van der Mark.
Much the same as race one, aside from where Haslam managed to stay on his machine, battling with Torres once more, losing out to come home across the line in 5th. Davide Giugliano had a violent change of fortunes for the second outing, battling for lower podium honours while his team mate checked in his bags at San Francisco airport, he managed to high side himself out of the race and into a tumbling dizzy state following a spouting of rain shortly after the lights went out. Sylvain Guintoli also fell on the same lap in an apparent collision with Alex Lowes who suffered a punctured front tyre and was pulling into the pits.
