The 2024 season will be Aegerter’s fourth as a Yamaha rider, having joined the Japanese manufacturer in 2021 to contest the FIM Supersport World Championship with the Ten Kate Yamaha WorldSSP Supported Team. The former Moto2 race winner made an immediate impact, winning ten races on his way to securing the world championship title on his first attempt. The following season saw Aegerter on the top step of the podium an incredible 17 times as he successfully defended his title, to become only the third rider in the history of the intermediate class to be crowned World Champion in consecutive years.
This achievement was recognised with promotion to the GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team, with whom Aegerter has enjoyed a strong start this year in his debut season. The likeable Swiss rider currently lies ninth in the championship standings and has been a frequent visitor to Parc Fermé, having so far finished three races as the top independent rider, a tally he is keen to increase before the end of the year.
For 2024, Aegerter’s aim is clear; to build on his solid performance this season and emerge as one of the frontrunners in the series, able to fight regularly for top-three finishes aboard his Yamaha R1.
