Chicken Hawk Racing-supported rider Dominique Aegerter wins FIM Supersport World Championship!
This is the 12th World Championship where the rider/driver used Chicken Hawk Racing Tire Warmers, and the 2nd FIM Supersport World Championship (the first one with Cal Crutchlow also aboard a Yamaha) for Chicken Hawk Racing (CHR).
Dominique and CHR have worked together previously when Dominique was competing in the FIM Moto2 World Championship. CHR has worked with the Ten Kate Racing Team since the late Nicky Hayden joined the team to race in World Superbike and has been proud to be a part of the team’s efforts.
On race day, Aegerter had a good start, but had to brake hard in the first corner to avoid a crash in front of him in which title rival Steven Odendaal was also involved. Aegerter moved up quickly from ninth place with a strong pace. On the seventh lap, the Swiss rider arrived in third place and managed to hold on to this position until the finish. This 14th podium finish of the season was more than enough to secure the world title.
Dominique Aegerter: “I am a little bit lost for words. We had a fantastic season with more than 10 wins and 14 podiums. It’s great to become world champion as a rookie in this class. I want to thank the Ten Kate Racing Yamaha team because they have done a fantastic job this season. Today, the bike was better than yesterday. I had a bit of luck in the first corner, but I am happy to finish on the podium. I also want to thank all my sponsors, because without them I wouldn’t be here. Tonight, it’s time to celebrate!”
Chicken Hawk Racing founder David Podolsky said: “We are really excited for Dominique and the Ten Kate Racing Team. They are an excellent team and provide us with very complete data about tire temperatures, wheel temperatures, and tire pressures, which helps us to advance our product and assist our customers worldwide. Congratulations to Dominique and the entire Ten Kate Racing Team.”
Team manager Kervin Bos said: “What an incredible feeling! The 10th World Supersport title for Ten Kate Racing and the 11th in total. It has been an emotional period, but we made a fantastic comeback with Yamaha. In our comeback season in World Supersport we immediately became world champion. That deserves a very big compliment to the whole team, all our partners and of course Dominique! From the beginning of our adventure, we had an excellent feeling with him. His mentality fits Ten Kate Racing perfectly and we have shown that this season together!”
