LOS ANGELES, CA (July 30, 2012) – Yamaha Factory Racing rider Jorge Lorenzo put in an impressive performance Sunday at Laguna Seca to take second in the Grand Prix of USA. Having started from pole, Lorenzo took the hole shot closely followed by rival Dani Pedrosa into turn one. The Rockstar Energy rider held the lead until a small incident in the corkscrew allowed Casey Stoner to close the already small gap, the Australian then passing him on the main straight on lap 21. Lorenzo tucked in behind in second, crossing the line just 3.429 seconds later.
“I tried my best the beginning to open a gap and I managed it but then in the corkscrew I almost crashed,” said Rockstar Energy’s Lorenzo. “For Casey maybe that was a motivation and he caught me in one lap. After that I couldn’t keep the pace I had in the beginning, maybe the soft tyre was the best option for this race. Without a doubt Casey was riding in an excellent form today and it wasn’t possible to beat him.”
The next event for Rockstar Energy’s Jorge Lorenzo is round eleven of the 2012 MotoGP Championship at the Grand Prix of Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN on August 19th.
