Dominique Aegerter completed a private WorldSSP test for Ten Kate Yamaha earlier this week, as the former Moto2 rider prepares for dual commitments in 2021. 

The Swiss rider goes into his first season in the WorldSBK paddock, whilst continuing in MotoE with the Dynavolt Intact GP team. 

Although Aegerter is a rookie regarding the WorldSSP championship, the 30 year-old brings a wealth of experience and pedigree to the championship having competed in Moto2 from 2010 until 2019, which includes one victory in 2014. 

And Aegerter has already shown potential during pre-season as he was close to lap record pace during the private test around Assen. 

Speaking after the one-day test aboard the R6, Aegerter added: "It was a good test on the home track of the team in Assen. It was a private test, so I was the only one on the racetrack. 

"It was a very positive day in good conditions with some sun and around 25 degrees asphalt temperature. 

"We were also very fast and my fastest lap was around the lap record. My pace was going a little bit up and down, because the wind was changing a bit during the day. 

"We collected a lot of data, which the team can check in the workshop. We’re at a top level and I can’t wait to start the season. 

"Big thanks to the Ten Kate Racing Yamaha team for their hard work and to the TT Circuit Assen for this opportunity!"

Aegerter’s first competitive action will be on May 2, as the MotoE World Cup gets underway at Jerez, while his debut in WorldSSP will come at Aragon on May 21-23.
