Lorenzo´s M1 exhibited in Athens

Spaniard´s MotoGP machine main attraction of Greek show.

Jorge Lorenzo´s Yamaha M1 from the 2008 season was the star of the show in Greece last week, taking pride of place in the Athens ‘Motograndprix & Racing´ exhibition held at the Mall.

Over 800,000 visitors had the chance to get up close with the Fiat Yamaha machine, as well as a Ducati Desmosedici and a range of a further 20 bikes, as part of the 18 day show.

Trial riders and young minimoto talents also took part in demonstration exercises at the now-concluded Athens Racing Show event, one of the most popular of its kind in the country.

Lorenzo himself has been busy in recent weeks with various charity events, as well as participating in last weekend´s Monza Rally in his four wheel debut and picking a new racing number for 2009.
