The Suter rider took the win last time out at Motegi – a result that saw Tom Luthi defy the form book and grab a much needed win for himself and the Interwetten Paddock outfit.
To look at the Championship, Luthi has had a solid year, a podium to start with and then very consistent top five results from there on. But at Motegi he defied them all to take a controlled and dominant win, and put him in a a position to go one better at Phillip Island than he did last year – where he took a brilliant second place.
Luthi, a former 125cc Champion has spent the majority of his career in the second tier Championship, taking a handful of wins in Moto2. In this interview we talk to him about his time in Moto2 and whether he desires a step into MotoGP or across to WSBK. Luthi has committed for another year in Moto2.
We delve into his Japanese success and ask how that helps in coming into the Australian race and how a European racer deals with racing in different time zones on consecutive weekends.
Tom also looks at where MotoGP is going and discusses his feelings on its future.
