Jorge Lorenzo supports Haiti cause

Tuesday, 26 January 2010

The Spanish MotoGP rider donates the golden boots he wore in his debut season in the premier class to help raise funds.

MotoGP star Jorge Lorenzo has added his help to the unity being displayed towards victims of the Haiti earthquake, by supporting Oxfam’s efforts in assisting those who have been affected by the disaster.

Lorenzo has donated the golden Dainese boots which he wore during the 2008 season – in which he was Rookie of the Year – for auction.

Lorenzo stated: “Oxfam needs your donations in order to respond to this humanitarian crisis. The people of Haiti are in need and we cannot wait.”

Ahead of travelling to Malaysia for the MotoGP Test at the start of February where he will experience his first action of the year, Lorenzo took time to pose for the 2010 calendar of Barracuda as he advertised its new line of motorcycle accessories. You can watch the ‘Making Of’ video here..
