Jorge Lorenzo will sign off his rookie MotoGP season by riding with a special 'Lorenzo's Lands' livery on his Fiat Yamaha, in front of his home Spanish fans at Valencia this weekend.

The livery is the result of an initiative between Fiat and the Italian magazine 'Sportweek'. A competition was launched at the start of the season in which the public were invited to submit designs for the bike.

Named 'Lorenzo's Lands' after the Spaniard's victory celebration, which involves planting a flag bearing his logo into a gravel trap, the winning design incorporates the flags of all 14 countries in which the young Spaniard has celebrated a victory during his career in 125, 250 and MotoGP - as well as his own 'Lorenzo's Land' flag.

Lorenzo will run the livery throughout this weekend as he aims to secure the 2008 MotoGP 'Rookie of the Year' title.

The Estoril winner will start Sunday's 18th and final round fourth in the championship, 21 points clear of fellow rookie Andrea Dovizioso.
