Jorge Lorenzo becomes ‘MotoGP Legend’ this Saturday


The former Spanish rider Jorge Lorenzo, five times world champion, will officially become the ‘Legend’ of the Motorcycle World Championship this Saturday (6:00 p.m.), in a ceremony that will take place taking advantage of the celebration at the Jerez-Ángel Nieto Circuit of the Grand Prix of Spain.

The Spaniard, who left the championship after the 2019 season, won two consecutive titles in the 250cc category, in 2006 and 2007, and then made the leap to MotoGP where he was crowned champion in 2010, 2012 and 2015.

The CEO of Dorna, Carmelo Ezpeleta, already announced at the time of the Mallorcan’s farewell in Valencia that he would enter this MotoGP Hall of Fame, but, due to the pandemic, this act has been delayed until this weekend in the Cadiz layout where the last curve bears precisely his name.

Jorge Lorenzo is one of the most successful drivers of all time. He debuted his World Cup record in 2003 and added his last win, 68, 47 of them in the ‘queen’ category, in 2018 on a Ducati. After winning the 250cc titles with Aprilia in 2006 and 2007, he signed for Yahama to compete in MotoGP and with the Japanese factory he was crowned champion in 2010, 2012 and 2015 and added 44 wins. In 2017 he signed for Ducati, where he added another three victories, and in 2019 he moved to Repsol Honda where he was barely able to shine.
