Lorenzo enduring in Abu Dhabi

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Jorge Lorenzo, member of team Movistar Yamaha MotoGP and third-place finisher in the 2014 MotoGP standings, hasn’t stopped racing during the off-season – though he has traded two wheels for four.

The Spaniard teamed up with Liam Talbot, Marco Zanuttini and Jacques Duyver to compete in a 12-hour endurance race last weekend at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina circuit. The team drove a Ferrari 458 GT3 Challenge Evo decked in Lorenzo’s number 99 Monster Energy livery. 

“It was an amazing experience,” Lorenzo said, “and we even won in our category.” (The “Gentleman” category, in case you were wondering.) He finished 18th in the overall standings.
