2021/09/30 - FIM Supersport World Championship: Portuguese Round / Preview

Next task ahead: Portimao’s rollercoaster ride

Winning for the tenth time this season last Sunday in Jerez helped Dominique Aegerter to come to terms with the tragic events of the previous day. This weekend, the first task is to conquer the challenging circuit of Portimao.

Dominique Aegerter arrives at the third-last event of this year’s FIM Supersport World Championship as overall leader with a 62-point gap on his first opponent in the title fight, Steven Odendaal. The circuit in the outback of southern Portugal’s Algarve coastline, however, is considered as one of the most difficult in the world. Aegerter knows it from last year's Moto2™ Grand Prix, while South African Steven Odendaal goes into the third and final race weekend of the gruelling triple-header with considerably more track knowledges.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (Ten Kate Racing Yamaha, Yamaha YZF R6):

"Jerez was a great weekend for us from a sporting perspective. Unfortunately, Saturday was once again a nightmare black day for our sport. Tragic events like the fatal crash of Dean Berta Vinales always hit me deeply. I feel so sorry for this young guy, as his career has not even really started yet. But on Sunday we raced again, which was perhaps the best thing to process everything quickly. However, joy about my victory only came to a limited extent. At the beginning of this week, I had a few nice days to relax. On Monday and Tuesday, I was still in Jerez, before I move over to Portimao on Wednesday. The weather was great, so I could really enjoy the days. It was even still for swimming in the sea."

"In Portimao, I know the track from last November when I stand in at RW Racing and NTS. The track is beautiful, but at the same time it is very strange either. There are a lot of crazy turns, as well as it is a constant uphill and downhill along a lap. You actually can compare it to a roller coaster. So, I cannot wait to go to Portimao for the first time with my Ten Kate team. The first laps there aboard my Supersport Yamaha R6 will certainly be exciting. But I am not too worried because we are in a good and consistent form. In addition, I can always rely on my team, because they work incredibly precise. Nevertheless, I hope for a good start to the weekend. FP1 and FP2 on Friday have to bring as much information as possible, in terms of gearing and tyres. Nevertheless, I like this difficult track and hopefully the weather will stay as nice as in Jerez. As always, we will take things step by step and not rush. After the relaxing days, I feel optimally prepared from my side for the championship’s visit to Portimao."
