Thomas Luthi - Interwetten

Thomas Luthi

Thomas Luthi started racing in 1997 when he was only eleven, in his local Pocketbike Championship. After several Pocketbike titles and top three finishes in both the European and German 125cc Championships, Luthi made his Grand Prix debut in 2002.

2003 marked Luthi's first full year of World Championship racing. A few promising races weren't enough to pull him any higher than 15th, and in 2004 he slipped to 25th after a season of crashes and injuries.

2005 appeared to be a turning point in his career as he clinched the 125cc World Championship title with relative ease. The 2006 season proved that theory wrong as Luthi was unable to defend his crown. The move to the 250cc class was made in 2007, where he finished 8th overall aboard a factory Aprilia racing for Emmi-Caffe Latte. 2008 started out as a promising season, but a huge crash in Indianapolis left Luthi with a serious injury to his hand, and three races out - leaving him to slip down to 11th overall. 2009 found him still on his Aprilia with Emmi-Caffe Latte, and a few clicks up the boards to finish 8th for the season.

2010 saw Luthi pilot a Moriwaki MD600 in hopes to make an impact in the Moto2 category with the Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 team. An extremely impressive 5 total podiums and an overal 4th place finish among a field of 40+ riders proved that Luthi indeed did make an impact. Thomas will continue to ride for Interwetten in 2011, switching to a Suter mount, as thier sole team member.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Thomas Luthi rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
