Motegi to host another 125 thriller

Motegi to host another 125 thriller

If the 2004 Japanese GP saw a dominant performance by Andrea Dovizioso, this year's 125cc race promises to be a much closer affair, with five riders separated by just 44 points at the top of the championship and six different riders having already won in the series this year.

Swiss youngster Thomas Lüthi leads the way by eight points but the men immediately behind him, Mika Kallio, Gabor Talmacsi, Marco Simoncelli and Mattia Pasini, are among those to have tasted victory this season and all four are still in with a realistic chance of challenging for the title.

Five local wildcards will also be taking part in the 125cc event at Motegi although Spanish teenagers Nico Terol and Julian Miralles are both out through injury.
