Mika Kallio put in a well timed overtake to take his debut Moto2 win at a cloudy Brno on Sunday.
The Marc VDS rider worked his way into contention early on to take his first win since 2008, in the 250cc class, a feeling the Finn called 'incredible'.
At the mid-point of the race the battle for the lead was between Kallio, Terol and Luthi and with Nakagami speeding up to get in the mix for the closing stages.
Kallio took to the front for the second time in the closing stages, keeping his Kalex tight to the corners and creating a gap, leaving the chasing riders no way back as the finishing line approached.
Italrans rider Nakagami tried to conserve his tyres, the opposite tactic to the one he employed in Indianapolis, only to finish second for the second consecutive race.
Third went to Luthi, the Swiss rider feeling capable of the win for Interwetten Paddock, but remained upbeat, happy with his podium after an eighth place start. Luthi was also the first Suter to take the flag.
Pol Espargaro failed to make the best of his opportunity to cut down Scott Redding's championship lead.
Though pushing for the podium on the final lap, the Tuenti HP 40 rider spent much of his race tussling for position, first with championship leader Redding then with Johann Zarco. His fourth place takes just five points from his rival, giving the Briton a 21 point lead heading into his home race at Silverstone.
After passing Redding, Espargaro's defensive lines kept Zarco behind him the Frenchman settling for fifth for the Came Iodaracing Project.
Sixth went to one time race leader, Mapfre Aspar's Nico Terol, ahead of Indy winner Tito Rabat in seventh for the Pons team.
Redding's eighth was damage limitation after a difficult race at a circuit he does not have a great record at.
After using Luthi's ability to surge to the front during the race to his advantage, stalking the Swiss rider as the pair of them cut through the pack, left the Marc VDS man right behind rival Espargaro after seven laps.
