Luthi sidelined for Japan and Australian rounds

Luthi sidelined for Japan and Australian rounds

Thomas Luthi will play no part in the next two 250cc races as he recovers from a hand injury.

Thomas Luthi has been ruled out of the next two Grands Prix, starting with this weekend´s A-Style Grand Prix of Japan, following surgery in his native Switzerland. The Emmi-Caffe Latte rider received a skin graft to his left thumb to heal an injury picked up at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, and will be recovering from the operation for the next few weeks.

The ex-125cc World Champion will aim to make his return on the October 19th Polini Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
