ROCKSTAR ENERGY’S JORGE LORENZO CLAIMS CATALUNYA

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 4, 2012) – Yamaha Factory Racing's Jorge Lorenzo claimed a superfluous victory in dominant form today in the Grand Prix of Catalunya, his third win of the 2012 MotoGP Championship season. Starting from second on the grid, the Championship leader tucked in behind teammate Ben Spies on the first corner, and held third until a mistake by Spies on lap two promoted him to second behind Dani Pedrosa. The two local heroes then battled it out exchanging the lead until six laps from the end where Lorenzo put the hammer down, moving into first and building a lead of over five seconds the line. This second consecutive victory puts the Rockstar Energy rider 20 points clear of closest rival Casey Stoner in the Championship standings and Yamaha nine points clear of Honda at the top of the Constructors Championship standings.

“I’m really happy with this victory as it was a very tough weekend. We performed a lot better than yesterday as in qualifying it was very hot. The grip on the track after the rain this morning was also not so great. At the beginning of the race when I was following Ben and Dani it was very easy to make a mistake under braking and touch them so I waited calmly for my opportunity. When Ben made a mistake I moved up. I followed Dani and watched him, he slowed his pace and eventually made a mistake so I was able to pass him then give it full throttle. Thank you so much to Yamaha and my team for working hard to make a great bike for today’s victory.”

The next event for Rockstar Energy’s Jorge Lorenzo is round six of the 2012 MotoGP Championship in Silverstone at the Grand Prix of Great Britain on June 17th.
