MotoGP World Champion, Jorge Lorenzo to ride Yamaha R15 across Buddh International Circuit on 11th January and will then visit Auto Expo

Jorge Lorenzo, 2009 MotoGP world champion will start his Indian journey from tomorrow. The Yamaha rider is on a promotional tour for the Japanese bike maker. As part of the schedule, Jorge will ride a Yamaha R15 2.0 bike at the new Buddh International Circuit at Greater Noida. Lorenzo will also visit the Delhi Auto Expo which is currently on at Pragati Maidan. The Buddh International Circuit recently hosted its first Formula 1 race. Since then, no premier class racing event has been held at the race track.

"I am extremely excited at the prospect of coming to India," he told TOI. "This will be my first visit to the country and I have been told that the biking culture has evolved tremendously there over the years. With India getting equipped with one of the world's best race tracks and having already hosted F1, we can expect India to be the next destination for Moto GP."
