Tom was motivated to do well in front of his home crowd. He felt at home on the circuit on Saturday and had a lot of self confidence when he prepared himself for the qualifying heat. He started around twentieth position but he stayed calm and worked his way up to seventeenth position during the race. Because the track was really fast it was difficult to overtake so Tom had to be satisfied with seventeenth position.
In the first moto he took a good start and came out of the first corner in fourteenth position. He found his rhythm straight away and was following the riders in front of him.

Tom finished fourteenth overall and sits in 22nd position in the World Championship Standings.
