RawDawg, i couldn't of put it better myself.

Aegerter is putting quite a nice season together for himself, he was slightly in the shadow of Tomizawa for obvious reasons, but 13th place in the championship and a good few top 10's is a great job. It never really happend for him in 125's but he was getting a bit to big for them in 2009, maybe this is the start of a good run the Dominique, in memory of Shoya.

Good on him. He said before friday kicked off he was gonna just go flat out like Shoya did all weekend long and he did exactly that.
I thought before friday that Aegerter, Redding & De Angelis were gonna be on one and with the latter pair in 1st & 2nd till the last 30 secs of qualifying it was obviously the case.
I wouldn't say they were out to prove a point - more that they were maybe trying to put some demons to rest the only way racers know how.

Agree Marky. Its human to slow down after such a tragedy, and who would blame you, however the racers find something within and go faster. Thats why we all admire and show up to watch them. Much respect.

I feel so sorry for the Technomag-CIP team, its been quite clear throughout this season through Jules insights on Eurosport that they believed Shoya would be a real championship threat for them next season, if not this. Now they have to pick themselves up off the floor, I hope Dominic continues this form and helps them through this dark period with his performances. Best wishes to them next time out in Japan for what will again be a very emotional weekend, especially with Shoyas family present.

The little guy really touched people this season didnt he?, he seems to have been a huge favourite with everyone. We are all poorer for his passing.
