The swiss Jason dupasquier, was one of those “caste” riders, the son of a former motocross rider and a native of the Swiss town of Bulle, who should have turned 20 on September 7, but a very serious accident at turn nine of the Mugello circuit, the exit of the curve known as Arrabbiata 2, has taken his life too soon.
Dupasquier made his debut in the world championship in one of the most complicated seasons in the history of motorcycling, that of 2020, when after the first date in the Qatar Grand Prix which was played in Losail, the pandemic was declared worldwide and the championship could not be “reactivated” until July. In his first World Cup campaign, the Swiss rider could only accumulate experience without scoring a single point.
The situation, in the 2021 season improved notably for this young driver who, with five races contested, occupied the tenth position of the championship, he had already shown very “good manners” in some of the great prizes, scoring in all of them and with a seventh position as best result in the Jerez de la Frontera race.
Like many other riders, his love of motorcycles came from his parentage, as his father Phillipe Dupasquier was a well-known motocross rider and Jason began his career in another specialty very different from speed, “Supermoto”, a modality that mixes the asphalt and dirt with heavy skids and jumps and in which he was several times Swiss national champion.
From that moment the young man Jason, was attracted to speed racing before he was fifteen and there he conquered the title of the “ADAC NEC” Moto3 championship in 2016, before venturing to compete in the junior world championship of the category in 2017, better known as the FIM CEV Repsol.
In constant progression, Jason Dupasquier was selected to contest the “Red Bull Rookies Cup” in 2018, but bad luck wanted him to break the femur in his left leg in the second race of the junior world championship, which forced him not to be able to compete in the Cup through which renowned pilots such as the Spanish Joan Mir and Jorge Martín have passed. the Australian Jack Miller, the Portuguese Miguel Oliveira or the French Johann Zarco.
Dupasquier was out for the entire 2018 season, but in 2019 she got her breath back and he competed again to get a fourth place in the Ángel Nieto de Jerez and be eighth at the end of the championship in the junior world championship.
A cerebral edema and severe chest trauma they have crossed paths in the life of this young Prüstel team rider, the same one in which he would have been with Pedro Acosta had it not been for the Finn Aki Ajo, who claimed him for his team, at the last moment .
The Arrabbiata 2, the second of two curves linked with the same name and place of the very serious accident of the Swiss Jason Dupasquier, has claimed its first fatality.
