This is what Thomas had to say before round two:
“The season has started brilliantly with me feeling more comfortable every session I go out. I know I have the pace to run at the front, and I can’t wait to get out at Brands Hatch for my home round. The team is right behind me and we have a long season ahead to progress.“
Case Moto Rapido Moto3 team manager, Iain Hopcroft added:
“Really looking forward to seeing Thomas bring home another trophy at Brands, he has the ability to mix with the fast non-standard class guys too so let's rattle cages”
