2021/09/02 - FIM Supersport World Championship: French Round / Preview

To take an important step towards the big goal in Magny-Cours

After a perfect weekend at the last WorldSSP meeting in Navarra, Spain, Dominique Aegerter wants to continue his run of success at the World Championship’s visit to France.

The race calendar of the FIM Supersport World Championship includes a very varied program during the summertime. The series' debut races in Most and Navarra last month are now followed by round eight of the season in Magny-Cours, which is once again a familiar circuit for most teams and riders.

For Dominique Aegerter, however, the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours is again almost unknown territory. During a private test with his Ten Kate Racing team last June, the current overall leader was at least able to acquire good track knowledges of the challenging 4.4 kilometres long circuit located in the region of Burgund, before he starts on Friday in what is for the time being his third-to-last race weekend in the current campaign.

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

"After a weekend off, I am even more looking forward to seeing my team again and swing my leg over my bike. Magny-Cours will be an interesting affair. On the one hand, because the championship is already entering in its decisive stage, I have to skip the next race in Barcelona because of my commitment in MotoE World Cup, and on the other hand Magny-Cours is again new territory for me. Fortunately, my Ten Kate team did everything possible during the summer break so that we could test there and therefore going into this weekend with helpful data."

"I like coming to new circuits and I am able to practically call Magny-Cours as my home track, as I only have about 500 km to drive by my own car. The short distance should actually be an incentive for many Swiss fans to visit this race and cheer us. Anyway, I would be very happy to see many Swiss flags along the track. The track layout should suit my riding style well. There are lots of fast corners, slow spots and some very hard braking points. I also like that there are some elevation changes over the course of a lap. So, there is plenty of variety, I liked the track straight away."

"It would be great if we could take the beautiful late summer weather of the last few days to France. The weather can change quickly in the region around Magny-Cours. Stable track conditions would be really welcome this weekend because mixed conditions could quickly upset the original plan. Nevertheless, I am going to France with a good feeling, and I also feel top prepared after the good practice in the break after Navarra. As far as I know, we are to get a new engine. So, the conditions for a perfect weekend like last time in Navarra should be much better. It would be super if we could continue in the same way."
