Aegerter steps in at RW Racing to replace Raffin for Brno Moto2 round

Swiss rider Jesko Raffin will be forced to skip the Brno Moto2 round due to an undetected physical issue, with his fellow countryman Dominique Aegerter replacing him at RW Racing.

Swiss NTS Moto2 rider Jesko Raffin, who already withdrew from the Andalusia GP, will also be forced to skip the Brno GP this coming weekend due to issues which are unclear, the issues caused severe exhaustion and dizziness. Raffin intends to have more tests done in the next few days to try and find a cause for his troubles whilst remaining optimistic that he will be able to return to the race track in Austria.

RW Racing have signed 29-year old Dominique Aegerter as a replacement rider for the Czech GP with the Swiss rider bringing a wealth of experience to the Dutch team from his previous 164 races in the Moto2 class. Due to the call up being at such short notice, Aegerter won’t be testing the NTS Moto2 bike before FP1 on Friday morning.
