Biography

After three years in the very competitive 250cc category, Lüthi was also part of the game when the 250cc category was changed to the 600cc Moto2 category. For eight years, Tom Lüthi has been consistently at a high level in the Moto2 World Championship, securing 45 podium places during the 2010-2017 seasons, 11 victories as well as twice the vice world champion title (2016 and 2017).

Then, finally, a dream came true for Tom Lüthi: in 2018, the Swiss rider made his way to the MotoGP World Championship and competed on a Honda RC213V in the premier class. However, the season was more difficult than expected, not at least due to a long injury break in the 2017/2018 winter season and the resulting loss of preparation time.

But Tom wouldn't be Tom if that made him give up: The combative Bernese rider remains focused, gets a chance to return back to the Moto2 World Championship after this difficult MotoGP season and will fight for his way back to the top in 2019.
