Tom Luthi is Second in Silverstone and Thrid in the championship

Tom Luthi continues with his strong performance in Silverstone und after he finished the Warm up as third, the young Swiss gained in today's race the second place. After not so easy conditions in the practice sessions of the British Grand Prix 2010 Luthi had a successful event and is now third in the championship with 58 points in total.

The race start was modest. Luthi didn't have the best start and he had to fight hard to gain back positions. After a few laps the 24 years old was riding in the middle field and had one fast lap after the other and in the last lap he even was leading the race. After Luthi could prevent a highside he lost the lead and finished the race as second with a 0,057 seconds gap to Cluzel.

The next race will take place at the cathedral of Motorcycle Racing, the TT Assen.

Tom Luthi, 2 -- 39'19.529:

"This was a ranged weekend. At the end it went well. In the race I tried to attack. In the first corner it was getting very tight and I lost some positions, then I gained the positions back step by step and in the last lap I was leading the race. Unfortunately I lost this position to Cluzel at the end. This was an important race for us. I am now third in the championship and that gives me a good feeling."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:

"I am very happy that Tom is on the podium. He was fighting hard and after this not so good start he got in front and was leading the race. Now we are third in the championship and that is a good base to start into the next Grand Prix weekend in Assen."

Daniel Epp, Rider Management:

"This was again a very good performance from Tom. He rolled up the field from behind and had the fastest race lap. With Tom we are in the leading group and that is fantastic."
