Aegerter wants to crown his 3rd MotoE season with the title win at the showdown in Misano
It's all or nothing for Dynavolt Intact GP rider Dominique Aegerter this weekend in the upcoming 2022 FIM MotoE World Cup finals at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, as the Swiss leads the fight for the electric class title.
After finishing third overall in 2020 and narrowly missing out on the title to Jordi Torres last year, the successful Swiss racer Dominique Aegerter is aiming to win the World Cup for the first time at the big MotoE season finale in Misano this weekend. 17.5 points separate him from his closest rival Eric Granado after the two Austrian races.
Should the Brazilian win twice, as he did last time in Austria, a second and third place would still be enough for the Swiss to decide the World Cup in his favour. However, this is no easy task, as the countless battles in the season so far have proven. The level is extremely tight thanks to the unit engines, but Aegerter has a strong record in 2022 alone: three wins, five second places, one third and one fourth place, which means he has been on the podium in nine out of ten races so far.
Before the two eight-lap races on the 4.2 km track near Rimini decide about victory or defeat in the fight for the title, the 31-year-old Aegerter is aiming for a perfect setup of his Energica Ego Corsa machine in order to be able to secure a place on the front row of the grid on Friday afternoon from 16:50 (CEST).
Something the reigning Supersport World Champion says will be essential for both races.
The local fans can expect a mindblowing showdown on Saturday (16:25) and Sunday (15:30), but those at home can also follow the two final races via livestream.
Can the Dynavolt Intact GP protégé manage to win the MotoE title at his third attempt with his spirited fighting spirit?
