Unexpected problems for Tom Luthi and his team

The first two days of the Grand Prix of Le Mans in France were not really what Tom Luthi and the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team were hoping for after the fabulous result they had in Jerez de la Frontera three weeks ago.

The 24 years old Swiss finished the Qualifying as 17th before tomorrow's race and had to suffer some unexpected problems during the session. Unfortunately they still are not sure what exactly the problem was that caused the Chattering Luthi had during the session. The team will surge for solutions tonight and will hopefully also find them, so Tom can fully concentrate on attacking the front during tomorrow's race.

Tom Luthi, 17 -- 1'39.900:
I don't have much to say today apart from the session didn't go right. We had different problems, which we could not identify 100% yet, but we have to solve them for tomorrow. We have a lot of work in front of us for tonight.

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
I can only say what Tom says. The qualifying was different than we hoped it would be, this is for sure. We have several problems, a big one is the chattering and we have to find a solution. Today will be a long day for the team.
