Another podium chance for Sam Lowes as Phillip Island beckons

After leaving Japan, the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 Team is moving to Australia, where this weekend is scheduled the sixteenth round of the 2016 Moto2 World Championship at the spectacular Phillip Island circuit. Fifth placed in the 2014 Australian Grand Prix in his debut year in Moto2, and second in last year’s edition, Sam Lowes arrives on one of his favourite tracks and is therefore determined to fight again for the victory.

The first Free Practice session will kick off Friday 21 October at 11.55 local time, 1.55 CET, while the 25-lap race is scheduled on Sunday 23 October at 14.20 local time, 4.20 CET.


“Phillip Island is a circuit I love and where I’ve always been very strong, since my first year in Moto2. Therefore our goal is to fight again for the victory, because we have everything it takes to be competitive. At the moment the weather forecast for the weekend are not very good, so we could meet difficult conditions, but we are confident and ready anyway!”.


“We left Japan with a bitter taste in the mouth for not being able to realize the good potential shown over the weekend, so we are absolutely determined to make up for it. Sam has always been very fast at Phillip Island, a very technical and definitely not easy track. It seems that this year we will face low temperatures, so this will make things even more complicated. We have to work focused as always and try not to make mistakes, in order to bring home a good result”.
