Moto2™ veteran Randy Krummenacher started his career on 125cc machinery, riding in the 125 and Moto3™ World Championships before moving up to the intermediate Moto2™ class in 2011. The Swiss rider was able to score a good haul of points each season before he made the switch to World Supersport in 2016. Making his debut as the teammate to reigning Champion Sofuoglu with Kawasaki Puccetti Racing, Krummenacher faced a big challenge and was able to bring the fight to the Turk.
The 26 year old closely fought for the title, and lead the series at the beginning of the season as he got off to a winning start. However inconsistency towards the end of the season meant he finished in third position in the championship standings, two points off second position. Krummenacher will now move up into the World Superbike series with Kawasaki Puccetti Racing as he will hope to have another impressive rookie season.
