“Sepang is one of my favourite tracks”
In the 125cc class reigning World Champion Thomas Lüthi (Elit Grand Prix Honda RS125R) knows his title has gone for this year, but the Swiss rider is determined to finish the season strongly.
Alvaro Bautista (Aprilia) is the
runaway leader, but both Lüthi and Gabor Talmacsi (Humangest Honda RS125R) are set on showing their best in the closing races.
Talmacsi said, "Malaysia's a country I like very much, and I'm going there a few days earlier because I want to get used to their weather and also meet some friends in Kuala Lumpur. This is one of my favourite tracks, but high temperatures make this Grand Prix quite tough. Anyway, I'm confident I can make a good race like I did in the Czech Republic."
Lüthi knows he has the pace to perform well here and said, "I've got to get nearer the front in qualifying and that means getting a good tow from a fast rider in the final timed session.
The track suits my style with fast flowing turns, and if I can get with the front runners early in the race I know and can stay with them and aim for a podium here."
