Dominique Aegerter (born September 30, 1990), is a Swiss Grand Prix motorcycle road racer, currently competing in the Moto2 World Championship.

Career[edit]

National racing[edit]

Born in Rohrbach, Switzerland, Aegerter started his career in motocross. He then competed in the ADAC Pro Junior Cup 125cc class in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 he moved into the equivalent IDM class, where he competed until the end of 2006. Also in 2006, Aegerter was called up by Multimedia Racing to compete in the 125cc World Championship. Aegerter made his world championship debut in the Portuguese Grand Prix replacing fellow Swiss rider Vincent Braillard. He remained with the team for the rest of the season.

125cc World Championship[edit]

Aegerter continued with Multimedia Racing for the 2007 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season and still had Italian teammates Raffaele De Rosa and Simone Grotzkyj. He had a very slow start only managing to score back to back 15th place at the 2007 Catalan motorcycle Grand Prix and at the 2007 Dutch TT, and later at the wet 2007 Japanese motorcycle Grand Prix at 11th place. This championship points scoring finishes only manage he finished at 23rd place with 7 points.

For the 2008 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season, he was offered alongside Frenchman Mike Di Meglio by Ajo Motorsport to ride for them. They both accepted it, while Di Meglio has a full factory Derbi RSA 125, he uses only a standard Derbi RS 125 making him the only Derbi rider to use a standard Derbi bike. Results improved however, as he finished 16th overall, peaking with three 8th places – ahead of di Meglio in Spain, and in San Marino and Malaysia

For 2009, Aegerter stays with the team alongside Sandro Cortese. Both riders use the factory Derbi RSA 125, giving Aegeter hope for a stronger year than 2008. Sixth place in the wet at Le Mans was the highlight of the first half of the season.

Moto2 World Championship[edit]

At the 2014 German Grand Prix, Aegerter achieved both his first Grand Prix pole position and victory – in his 129th start – fending off Mika Kallio's advances in the closing stages.[2]
