Moto2: Tomizawa team-mate records best finish

Shoya Tomizawa's team-mate scores a best finish of seventh in memory of the fallen rider.
Dominique Aegerter gave the grieving Technomag-CIP team something to smile about during the Moto2 Aragon Grand Prix as he claimed his best result of the season.

The Swiss racer, competing alone in the wake of team-mate Shoya Tomizawa's tragic death at Misano, was determined to put in a strong result for both the team and the fallen rider at Aragon.

He duly achieved his objective, Aegerter posting a best finish of the season in seventh, a result that moves him up to 13th in the overall standings.

An important performance both himself and the team, he is hoping the result can carry 'motivation and hope' for the remainder of the year.

“I made it quite clear to Shoya and our team,” he said. “I wanted to produce a good result and I am happy that it worked. It will serve as motivation and hope for the other races.”

Shoya would have wanted for me to continue to ride at full throttle and not to brake because of such a tragedy. He lost his life whilst doing what he loved. He loved motorsport, just like me. For me, riding bikes stands above all and this will continue to be the case.”

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.
