Who the hell is Chaz Davies?

Dailies -



Chaz Davies isn’t just the recipient of this sweet £100 cheque, he’s also a Super Sport racer for Yamaha who, in the past couple years, has also raced MotoGP, AMA and 250GP. Born in Wales, he’s also the only famous person from that country who isn’t a professional a cappella singer, something likely credited to the racetrack his dad built in his childhood backyard.

    Ah but for the days of accurate and well investigated journalism . Like the Dodo …… gone ………. I guess .

      Oh, Tom Jones… I’d maybe not mention that one in public.

    • Tom

    Chaz has a heck of a story. Rocky starts, abandonment from teams, and doing incredibly well right now. Glad to see him get some coverage.

    “Only famous person from Wales…” hyperbole for effect isn’t lost on everyone.

    He’s a fast Welshman with a great name. What more is there?

    He raced World Supersport for Triumph last year but the whole ParkinGO team bolted for Yamaha. Poor Triumph. They just can’t seem to compete. Jason DiSalvo also raced on the ParkinGO team but has found more success this year riding a Ducati in AMA Daytona Sportbike.

      Poor Triumph? More like poor teams that get involved with Triumph. They are rumoured to not produce what they promise to the teams that race their bikes.

      Poor Triumph. That’s funny. They pulled support and the team almost didn’t go racing. Thankfully Yamaha stepped up with a program and look at the results.

    I can’t get the vid to play here at work so I hope I’m not repeating anything mentioned in it. I was watching the World Supersport race from Silverstone over the weekend on my DVR (VERY tape-delayed as it was in July) and the announcer mentioned that there’s been some speculation that Chaz Davies might be moved up to the Yamaha World Superbike team next year. Well, with the subsequent announcement that Yamaha is quitting WSBK I guess those plans are in doubt.

      Davies isnt on a “Factory” bike this year and it doesnt look to be slowing him down. lol

    Motorcycle videos have such cheesy music but it was cool. Thanks. Looks like parents need to sacrifice all their shit if they want to race their kids. I really hope he does well but in reality, there are no famous people from Wales. Where is wales anyways? Is that in the Inland Empire?

      “Good” Music costs money.

    Wales… isn’t that the place Greenpeace keeps trying to save from Japanese fishermen?
