Lorenzo tries out Aragon

MotoGP World Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo experienced the new Aragon grand prix circuit for the first time on Wednesday.

Aragon has joined the 2010 MotoGP calendar as a one-off fixture following delays with the planned Hungarian round.

Although unable to use his Fiat Yamaha YZR-M1, Lorenzo was able to lap the circuit on an R1 Superbike.

“It is a fun circuit with very different turns," he told the official MotoGP website. "The first turns are similar to Turkey and others seem like Misano. I hope that people who live close to here come and support the Spanish riders. I'm looking forward to racing here.”

The Aragon Grand Prix, from September 17-19, will be the third of four 2010 MotoGP rounds to be held in Spain.

aeolus, are you kidding? The first post on this topic explains that it was a streetbike. There is a photo of it on the MotoGP site which clearly shows the details I explained. An R1 streetbike is nothing at all like a R1 WSBK apart from basic appearance. There are also photos of an 1198 and Moto2 bikes with MotoGP riders on board from July if you look a bit harder.
