The summer break is over and the MotoGP world championship will start its second half of the season next weekend in Brno/Czech Republic with the Grand Prix Ceske republiky. All classes will reunite in the Czech Republic after the MotoGP class had a single appearance in the United States before the summer break.

Tom Luthi is looking forward to ride on the track in Brno after the relaxing summer break. He likes the racetrack in Brno especially because of its fast layout. The young man from Bern is sure that the result in Brno will continue his good form of the first half of the season and he hopes that another podium is waiting for him there.

On Wednesday prior the Grand Prix weekend Luthi and his Moriwaki MD600 will have a performance in the streets of Vienna, where MotoGP will meet the city and the Austrian fans. As Vienna is the home city of Interwetten, the main sponsor of the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team, Luthi will also visit the head quarter of the company and meet and greet their staff members.

Tom Luthi:

"I come back from the summer break and my holidays with new and necessary energy. I am fully recovered from my injury and I am completely fit again. I am looking forward to Brno as it is a fluent track, which I like. I think we should be able to fight at the top again and be part of the front group. A podium finish would be fantastic for Brno and this is also my target."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:

"Tom will attack fully recovered from his injury in Brno. At least one win should be the clear target for the second half of the season and I hope we can already fight for it in Brno. To be in the front group is realistic at least. During the summer break we worked on the bike as well and made some modifications together with Becker Carbon and Gilles Tooling, which I hope will suit Tom."

Daniel M. Epp, Rider Management:

"Tom really needed this summer break after his injury earlier on this season. In Brno he will be fully fit and recovered to start the second half of the season. He is full of energy and he likes Brno, this mixture should get Tom back to success very fast and he will be able to continue the season as strong as he was in the first half of it."

The race weekend of the Grand Prix Ceske republiky will start on 13th of August with the First Free Practice of the 125ccm class and ends with the MotoGP race on 15th of August.
