Induction into the MotoGP Hall of Fame for Jorge Lorenzo

At a celebration in Jerez on Saturday, five-time grand prix reigning champion Jorge Lorenzo was entered into the MotoGP hall of fame and named an official series legend.


Lorenzo debuted in MotoGP in 2008 for Yamaha as a two-time 250cc championship winner, and went on to earn victories of 47 races and three world championships in the top class in 2010, 2012, and 2015.

Lorenzo went to Ducati in 2017 and won three races in 2018, joining an elite group of racers who have won races for several manufacturers.

Lorenzo announced his resignation from MotoGP at the end of the season after an injury-plagued 2019 season with Honda.

Lorenzo joined Yamaha as a trial racer in 2020, but was replaced by Cal Crutchlow in 2021, and currently works as a MotoGP analyst for Spanish television.

Lorenzo accompanied contemporaries Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa, and Casey Stoner in being welcomed into the MotoGP hall of fame during an event in Jerez, where he has a corner named after him.

Lorenzo says the recognition “means much more than the trophies” he has won.

“After 20 years I am here, sitting here after the numbers I could achieve,” he said. “So, I can say that I arrived at that level of the 125cc rivals.

“But more than that, I could achieve better numbers than all the riders apart from Rossi that was in the championship.

“So, apart from that I met wonderful people, I raced against the best in the world.

“Now today I get this legend prize from Dorna that always treated me so well and this means even more than the championships because all the legends are champions, but not all the champions can be legends.

“So, I’m very lucky to be part of these legends.”

Lorenzo was supposed to be honored into the hall of fame last year, but because to the COVID-19 outbreak, the event had to be delayed.

In addition to continuing to work in MotoGP on the television side, Lorenzo will race in the Porsche Carrera Cup Italy in 2022 and competed in the Porsche Supercup round in Imola, placing 30th on his debut.
