SWISS ON A ROLL!
Extremely experienced despite being just thirty-one years old, Dominique Aegerter has been banging bars in grand prix racing since 2006 when he contested a handful of 125cc GPs.
Moving up to Moto2 in 2010, the Swiss racer established himself as a top-ten regular and won his first grand prix in Germany in 2014.
Up until this year’s FIM Supersport World Championship he had enjoyed the majority of his success in the MotoE class where he was third in his first year and improved to second in 2021.
A two-time podium finisher at the famed Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race, he had to wait until this year to prove himself to be a World-beater – and he did it in style!
In fact, Aegerter wrapped up the World SSP title one round early in his rookie season in the class – despite missing a race due to MotoE commitments – following the penultimate round at El Villicum in Argentina!
Leaving South America with a sixty-eight-point lead and only a maximum of fifty up for grabs at the series finale in Indonesia, Aegerter could reflect on a truly dazzling debut season in the class.
With one round still to go he had won ten races and claimed fourteen race podiums with double wins coming at Misano in Italy, Assen in Holland and the Circuito de Navarra in Spain.
The good news for fans of the series – and the bad news for his rivals – is that Aegerter plans to defend his title in 2022.
