Jorge Lorenzo is relishing the prospect of making his Laguna Seca debut this weekend after his disappointing early exit from last weekend’s Sachsenring clash.
The Fiat Yamaha rider crashed out of the top six in a rain-lashed German GP and he said: "I’ve never raced at Laguna but last year I went there to commentate for Spanish TV and I had a great time, California is an amazing place! I am so excited to finally get the chance to race there because it’s a very special track which everyone always talks about and I am looking forward to riding at a place with such famous corners as the corkscrew. I know it’s a difficult place but I am feeling stronger and I will be doing my best to get to know the circuit as quickly as possible and find a good feeling with the bike there. We need to work hard from that start, together with Michelin, to improve the grip issues we’ve been having. I am still disappointed about Sachsenring but luckily I wasn’t hurt and it’s good to have the chance to move on quickly and focus on the next race. Now my target is t o have a good weekend so that I can enjoy the summer break.”
