With this weekend’s Malaysia Grand Prix, the second last round of the season, the world championship enters the home straight. 

After last weekend's wet and cold weather in southern Australia, Malaysia's subtropical climate is probably the biggest challenge for everyone involved in the paddock. The Sepang Circuit, located about 70 kilometres before the gates of Kuala Lumpur, complicates things even more for Lukas Tulovic. Nevertheless, he is looking forward to his debut race in the Southeast Asian Country. 

For the spectators in Europe it means to set up an early wakeup call once again. The Moto2 race will start on Sunday at 06:20am CET.

 

#3 Lukas TULOVIC (Kiefer Racing, KTM Moto2): 

"Malaysia is also an unknown place for me. But the climatic conditions are similar to Thailand. So, from this point of view I can already imagine what awaits me when riding the bike here. With more than 5.5 kilometres length, the track is one of the longest in the calendar so, it will be very exhausting, not only physically, but also mentally. After the good race at Phillip Island I want to continue where we left off last Sunday. I'm already looking forward to this weekend, where my riding coach Christof Höfer will support me again. At this point I would like to thank him for making this long trip, but it will definitely be a great help again when he watches me on the track. Malaysia is also the last race on our long overseas journey. Somehow, I'm looking forward to it when we go home again this Sunday evening. But before that we’ve to deliver a proper conclusion of this series with four Grand Prix races in Asia and Australia."
