Lorenzo chasing third home win of 2010

MotoGP World Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo, winner of the two previous Spanish rounds this season, will be looking to continue his perfect home form and write his name in history as the first ever winner of an Aragon Grand Prix on Sunday.

But it won't be easy. Whilst holding an out-of-reach 63-point title advantage over compatriot Dani Pedrosa heading into round 13, it is the Repsol Honda rider who has won the last two races and is sure to likewise be fired-up for his home fans.

Lorenzo spent a day testing a Yamaha road bike at Aragon last month in order to familiarise himself with the track and is excited about the challenge of racing there.

"It's our third race in Spain but the first time at Aragon and I'm excited. I went to test there last month and it's an amazing track," he said. "The first corner reminds me of Turkey and there's a lot of up and down, it's a fun place.

"I would like to do a great race and dedicate it to Tomizawa.

"I hope lots of people but especially my fan club are coming because I think it will be a good weekend. My aim is to get on the podium again and to push as hard as I can. We're ready to start working."

"It's a great circuit and Jorge really loved it when we went there last month," confirmed team manager Wilco Zeelenberg. "It's very hilly, which is always fun, and it has many different types of corners so it's not too easy to learn but is an exciting challenge for the riders.

"Our target once again will be the podium and to keep working towards our target of the championship."

Lorenzo you are an amazing asset to MotoGP and will fully deserve this championship year should you win over all. Respectfully, I'd really like to see Rossi start winning again though. Do you take requests? :-PP

@lozba and unequal. When the Aussies and the Brits throw as much sponsorship at Motogp as Spain and the riders from Australia and the UK begin beating the Spaniards then there might be more races in these countires. Until then Dorna have to reward the Sponsors and the counrty who are footing the bill and winning the races.
