Parkingo Yamaha's Chaz Davies put on a riding masterclass to take victory in the World Supersport race at Monza this afternoon, mirroring Eugene Laverty's run in the opening WSB race, to cross the line more than five seconds in the lead.
The Welshman led into the first chicane and didn't look back, taking the laurels for the second race in a row with team-mate Luca Scassa in second and veteran Fabien Foret, on the Ten Kate Honda, in a distant third place. Davies is now joint series leader with Scassa.
Parkalgar Honda's Sam Lowes, who is riding with a broken collarbone, had to give best to veteran Broc Parkes in fourth while James Ellison rolled across the line in 17th after getting caught up in the aftermath of a crash at Ascari on the last lap. Gino Rea survived a monster highside at 120mph, also at Ascari, with five laps to go.
