After sealing the 2012 MotoGP World Championship in the AirAsia Australian Grand Prix at the Phillip Island Circuit last week, Jorge Lorenzo is gearing up for his debut in the 2012 Race of Champions which is scheduled from December 14-16, 2012, at the Rajmangala stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

Lorenzo will carry out a demonstration run in Bangkok on a Yamaha bike. The Yamaha MotoGP rider said: “2012 has been a fantastic year for me and I can’t think of a better way to finish it off than by taking on the world’s best drivers at the Race Of Champions. It will be a pleasure to share such a fantastic race with some of the best drivers in the world. It will clearly be a challenge to take them on at their own game but I’ll do my best to get the most out of the extra pair of wheels. With Mick Doohan in the field, we will both be aiming to show we can do very well on four wheels too. I hope the public enjoy it and have fun with all of us!"


The Race of Champions, an end-of-the-season contest, is being staged for the 25th consecutive time this year, and it brings together the best drivers from all genres of motorsport such as rallying, Formula One, Le Mans, touring cars, MotoGP, etc. This year it will stage the ROC Nations Cup on December 15, before the individual main event on the 16th.
