Moto2: Tom Lüthi Previews Germany GP

Moto2 News

The first half of the season 2010 is almost over for the MotoGP world championship and both of the smaller classes will start their well earned summer break soon, only the premier class will have to do another stop in the USA.

The summer closing will be at the Sachsenring circuit in Germany. The tradition of the Sachsenring circuit starts back in 1927 when the first ever motorcycle race took place on the old course. Until now the fans arrive from all parts of Germany and from all over the world to experience the unique atmosphere on the 3.7 km long track.

Tom Lüthi will arrive at the German track as second in the world championship standings and he will try to be up in front once again. The Swiss doesn’t think it is the right time yet to have an eye on the championship. The Sachsenring circuit is part of Lüthi’s career as he was already riding here years ago in the German championship and many of his fans will travel to the Sachsenring circuit to support the youngster from Bern.

Tom Lüthi says: "I am looking forward to Germany and my fans. It always is a very special atmosphere at the Sachsenring circuit. I hope I can be back somewhere at the front also this time, but I am not looking at the standings yet, it is too early. We were able to find some good settings for the MD600 in Aragón at the test last week and I hope I can use them at the Sachsenring circuit. I don’t really want to think about the first corner there. If I survive this I will be fine."

Terrell Thien (Team Manager) says: "I see the Sachsenring circuit as a positive stop. The track has some difficulties, but Tom could cope with them quite well in the past. Last week at the test in Aragón we found some settings for the bike that will hopefully help Tom at the Sachsenring circuit. How it goes we will see latest at the race on Sunday."

Daniel M. Epp (Rider Management) says: "Three eventful weeks with three races in Silverstone, Assen and Barcelona and the two days of testing in Aragón are over. I hope the short break before the Sachsenring helped Tom to relax a little bit after his surgery on the collarbone before Barcelona and he will be fit and ready for the race. He did a great job in Montmeló and I hope that Tom will also be in the front group at the Sachsenring circuit."

The race weekend of the Motorcycle Grand Prix Germany 2010 will start with the first free practice of the 125cc class on Friday, 16th of July and will end with the MotoGP race on Sunday, 18th of July.
