Lorenzo shows off Barcelona livery

On the eve of the Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya Jorge Lorenzo has unveiled his special edition Barcelona Football Club livery for the weekend.

Fiat Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo unveiled a special one-off livery at the Montmelò circuit on Thursday to honour Barcelona Football Club this weekend, having seen his favourite team complete a unique treble of Spanish Cup, Spanish league and Champions League triumphs in Italy two weeks ago.

The 22-year-old, who currently sits second in the World Championship standings, is a life-long supporter of the team and at the Thursday photo opportunity he was proud to show off the club badge on his helmet, leathers and Yamaha M1 bike.

Barcelona FC were represented at the unveiling by Jaume Ferrer amd Joan Boix, Vice Presidents of the club.

Lorenzo commented, “I’m very proud to be here in the colours of my team. I was there in Rome for the Champions League final and watching Barca win was like a dream! I’m so happy to be able to show my support for them in this way at our home track, and I hope the fans will like it because I know many of them are also big Barcelona fans!”
