Ducati signs Lorenzo for 2017

Lorenzos new racing challenge is with the Factory Ducati Team

Ducati signs Lorenzo for 2017

THE FACTORY Ducati Team has signed Jorge Lorenzo for the 2017 MotoGP season.

The news follows and earlier announcement that Movistar Yamaha and Jorge Lorenzo were to part company after 2016.

Lorenzo is now set to ride the Ducati Desmosedici GP in 2017 and 2018, competing alongside new team-mate Luigi Dall’Igna.

Dall’Igna was heavily involved in both of Lorenzo’s 250cc titles with Aprilia, and the two should make a formidable pairing.

Ducati hopes Lorenzo will provide the boost the team needs to take its first title since Casey Stoner's in 2007. Since Dall’Igna joined the Bologna factory, the team has consistently finished in the top five.

It will be the first time Lorenzo has ridden any MotoGP machine aside from the Yamaha M1.
