Lüthi leads polesitter Marini on Sunday morning

Swiss rider fastest by just over a tenth in Moto2™ Warm Up at Motegi

Dynavolt Intact GP’s Tom Lüthi has kicked off his Motul Grand Prix of Japan Sunday in perfect fashion, the Swiss rider topping the Moto2™ Warm Up times with a best time of 1:50.996. Polesitter Luca Marini was just 0.115 off top spot ahead of the race, with SKY Racing Team VR46 teammate Nicolo Bulega completing the leading trio.

Next on the times were the two Red Bull KTM Ajo machines of Brad Binder and Jorge Martin. Both have looked strong in the dry conditions all weekend but tricky Saturday weather saw the duo place well outside the top 10 in qualifying – what can they do in the race? Championship leader Alex Marquez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) finished eighth.

Watch the Moto2™ race live from the Twin Ring Motegi at 13:20 local time (GMT+9).
