#DA77: COMEBACK TO CATCH UP NINE PLACES IN SUNDAY’S HOT ARAGÓN RACE
Nevertheless, Dominique Aegerter was far below his expectation as the Swiss rider crossed the line down in 21st position.
Due to a promising start into the weekend with decent lap times during all free practice sessions, Dominique Aegerter had reasonable hopes of being able to overcome their crisis this weekend. But with P30 on the starting grid after Saturday’s qualifying, the chance worsened drastically which unfortunately proved to be true during the race.
After a two-weeks break, the championship continues in Thailand. This grand prix at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram is a new entry to the series calendar.
#77 Dominique AEGERTER (Kiefer Racing), 21th - Championship position 17th (27 points):
"It was a disappointing race for me. I never got close to the lap times we were able to put in on Friday and Saturday. In addition, I came to my limits very soon and as well to the ones of the bike. I’m very dissatisfied with today’s performance. Therefore, I hope that we will get out of this meanwhile long down for us. Tomorrow we have another test here, where we will find something hopefully, as well as to further improve out base setting. There are still five races left this season. So, I don’t give up my hopes for a turnaround. I will motivate myself for every race and will train as hard for Thailand to be well prepared for this difficult task."
