Dominique Aegerter will also compete for NTS RW Racing GP in both races in Austria. Jesko Raffin has not yet recovered enough to take action in the two consecutive races at the Red Bull Ring.
“It is still not clear what exactly is wrong with Jesko,” says NTS RW Racing GP team manager Jarno Janssen. “Things are getting better, but he is still very tired after an effort. Nobody benefits from him riding in those conditions. Not us, but certainly not him. Of course it is very annoying, especially for Jesko himself. He really wants to race, but also realizes that it is not wise at this moment and that he should now take the time to recover.”
It is expected that Raffin will be back in Misano. Until then, so at least the two races in Austria, this weekend and the next one, Dominique Aegerter will continue to replace his fellow countryman. “We are pleased with the experience that Domi brings,” says Janssen. “He can give us a lot of input, from which Bo Bendsneyder can also benefit.”
