BUSY FRIDAY IN ASSEN
During the first free practice sessions at the Dutch GP, Dominique Aegerter was only partially able to benefit from the findings after the Aragón test.
The season’s round eight got underway in glorious summer weather. In perfect conditions, however, Dominique Aegerter struggled somehow to find a feeling for the ultra-fast and flowing TT Circuit in the north of the Netherlands and above all, he is lacking confidence in corner entry at these many quick changes of direction along the 4.5 kilometres track. Assen stands out very clearly from the last venues due to its probably unique layout.
#77 Dominique AEGERTER (Kiefer Racing, KTM), FP1: P17 - 1´39.133 (21/21) / FP2: P25 - 1´39.495 (8/19):
"It was a busy start to the weekend for us. We are still struggling to improve the feeling in corner entry. I’m definitely feel not comfortable in this area though the gap to the front is not that alarming big, but we’re still missing small step to move forward. We already had a productive technical meeting and hopefully we will make good progress tomorrow."
