Right direction for Luthi

After two not so successful Grand Prixs at the Sachsenring circuit and in Brno also the first two days of the U.S. Grand Prix in Indianapolis did not go very well for Tom Luthi and the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 Team. But already in the Warm up for the race today you could see a glance of light coming through in the direction for the race result today and Luthi earned nine important championship points, which secured his third position in the championship, although he is sharing it with Julian Simon on 108 points each.

Tom Luthi, 7 -- 30'37.295:
"This was not an easy weekend for me. The two practice days did not go well again and I could not start the race from higher than 17th. I had to fight a lot, but had a good start and could catch up some positions. Unfortunately the race was restarted and I had to fight again. I did not have a start as before, but wasn't bad neither. We can take nine important championship points home. I am looking forward to Misano now, where I hope it will go better from the beginning again."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"It is a pity the race was stopped and restarted as Tom had a much better start in the first race than in the second one. But the second race still was much better than we expected and the direction is the right one. In Misano everything starts from Zero again and we will see where we are there."

Daniel M. Epp, Rider Management:
"After the two not so successful events at the Sachsenring and in Brno the result today was much better again. We are looking forward to Misano now where Tom surely can continue his good form he showed earlier in June."
