“A strong spearhead”
Ajo Motorsport is pleased to confirm that Grand Prix winner Frenchman Mike Di Meglio will join the team for the 2008 season.
Ajo Motorsport is equally pleased to confirm a contract with promising young and talented Swiss rider Dominique Aegerter.
With Aegerter the Ajo Motorsport team will continue its rider training and development program in the 2008 season.
Ajo Motorsport is also extremely pleased to announce today an even stronger co-operation with the Piaggio Group for the 2008 season. Ajo Motorsport and the Piaggio Group have found an agreement that will see Mike Di Meglio ride a Factory Derbi RSA racing motorcycle in the 2008 campaign.
Grand Prix winner Mike Di Meglio is an experienced rider, who soon has five full seasons of experience in the series, although he is still only 19 years of age. 17 year-old Aegerter is currently in his rookie season at Grand Prix level, and has already taken three Championship Point scoring finishes.
Team Manager Aki Ajo: "We've had a good season this year as a whole, and the support from the Piaggio Group has been outstanding for us. We are extremely happy to announce these quite remarkable news for us about our team and the RSA Factory machinery today. We feel that with Mike we have a strong spearhead for our Grand Prix effort, and to be able to provide him with an RSA Factory Derbi together with the Piaggio Group is fantastic. And we really look forward to getting to work with Dominique, as he has proven this year that he has the potential."
