Lorenzo triumphs in Abu Dhabi endurance event

Jorge Lorenzo played a successful role in a 12-hour endurance event over the weekend at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina circuit.

Driving a Ferrari 458 GT3 Challenge Evo, the double MotoGP™ World title winner demonstrated his four-wheel skills once again to come out on top in the ‘Gentleman’ category of the event. Carrying his 99 livery and with the backing of Monster, Lorenzo triumphed for Kessel Racing, accompanied by teammates Liam Talbot, Marco Zanuttini and Jacques Duyver.

“It was an amazing experience and we even won in our category,” said the Spaniard rider, who finished 18th in the overall standings. The outright winner was Michele Rugolo, who completed 315 laps for the AF Corse team, also driving a Ferrari 458 GT3.
