Herefordshire motorcyclist Chaz Davies wants a competitive ride in World Superbikes for the 2012 season.

Davies, 24, leads the World Supersport Championship by 20 points after three wins on his ParkinGo Yamaha.

"For me next year the goal is Superbikes - and a very competitive Superbike," he said.

"If I can't get on a competitive Superbike then I would prefer to stay where I am but we've got to do the business this year first."

Davies is aware of the expansion plans for MotoGP but told BBC Hereford and Worcester that this does not really interest him at the moment.

"They're allowing more standard bikes like Superbikes to be raced in MotoGP, although they will have prototype chassis and development," he said.

"These bikes will be allowed a bit more fuel and so a bit more power from that as well as other bits and pieces.

"There are more technically astute guys than me and they don't think it is not really going to work.

"It is going to be a cheaper form of racing and it will bolster the MotoGP grid but, for the guys on those bikes, it will be a battle to see who can get the last point and I am not really interested in that."

Chaz Davies will be in action next in the Czech Republic round of the World Supersport Championship in Brno Davies targets World Superbikeson Sunday, 10 July.
