Jorge Lorenzo has become a superstar of MotoGP, having seen off a host of big hames to seal two world championships in three years.
Lorenzo announced his arrival on the world stage with his two 250cc titles in 2006 and 2007. He has gone on to take over 20 wins for Yamaha at motorcycling’s highest level, finishing in the MotoGP world championship top two in each of the last four seasons and taking his first title in 2010.
2012 was even more remarkable for Lorenzo, who finished in the top two on the podium in every race bar one. The Spanish rider’s second place at Australia’s Phillip Island circuit was enough for him to ease clear of compatriot Dani Pedrosa and wrap up his second MotoGP world championship with a race to spare.
As famous for his flamboyant celebrations as his run of success, Lorenzo now has the chance to show what he can do on four wheels as he takes on motor sport legends including F1 world champions Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel at ROC 2012.
