IOTOMOTIF.com – Pembalap andalan Ducati Superbike Team WSBK, Chaz Davies tampil perkasa di sesi Free Practice 4 WSBK Imola 2014 setelah mengalahkan catatan waktu Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing) dan Jonathan Rea (PATA Honda WSBK). Chaz Davies berhasil mencatatkan waktu terbaik 1 menit 47.612 detik atau hanya unggul 0.042 detik dari Guintoli yang mencatatkan waktu 1 menit 47.654 detik. Sementara Rea sendiri hanya mampu menempati posisi ketiga dengan catatan waktu 1 menit 47.668 detik atau terpaut 0.056 detik dari Davies.

Penampilan mengejutkan justru ditunjukkan oleh Loris Baz (Kawasaki Racing) yang berhasil naik ke posisi keempat disusul oleh Marco Melandri (Aprilia Racing) di posisi kelima. Sementara rekan satu timnya, Tom Sykes sepertinya kurang beruntung dan hanya mampu menempati posisi ke-7 tepat dibawah pembalap tercepat di FP1 dan FP2, Davide Giugliano.
