Join Lüthi? for a lap around Jerez

Into the mindset of a Moto2 racer

Countlessly lapping a circuit to find the perfect lap is something Thomas ?Lüthi? has to do every race weekend to gain that important edge on his rivals. Speaking to exclusively Visordown, according to Tom finding this zone is the same with all race tracks:

"Everything has to be in the flow, from the breaking point till you go back on the gas. And on the straight, just as you come out of the last corner you have this feeling in your guts and you know: This was it! The proof comes a few seconds later (or not) on the lap timer."

The loneliness is quickly wiped out when the Moto2 riders meet on Sunday for the race, that's when a different mindset takes over, "To survive in the Moto2 class you have to be up on it every second - full gas," says Lüthi?, "It is brutal, everybody is so close together. There is no time to catch breath. All or nothing."
