The Majorcan's personal collection on display in Andorra with more than one hundred pieces collected over four years

Jorge Lorenzo opens the doors of his World Champions Museum

On Sunday, we saw him in Abu Dhabi for the last round of the F1 World Championship. Jorge Lorenzo has always had a great passion for two and four-wheeled vehicles. The Majorcan’s passion for motoring has grown constantly, to the point of driving him to accumulate a large collection of helmets and leathers from Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing riders and Formula 1 drivers.

Now the time has come to put them on display. Tomorrow afternoon, at 4:00 PM in Andorra, the Spaniard will open the doors to his World Champions Museum, where more than 100 items collected over just four years will be on display. Half of the items exhibited come from trades with other riders. An example of this is Vettel’s helmet, received on the occasion of the Race of Champions, or the helmet that belonged to his former teammate, Valentino Rossi, in 2014 at Mugello.

Of course, there will be no lack of memorabilia from those who have written some of the most exciting pages in Motorsport history such as Niki Lauda, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher, but also Barry Sheene, Mick Doohan and Wayne Rainey. A walk down memory lane, all the way up to the present. In addition to the collection, visitors will have the chance to experience the excitement of being a racer for the day in MogoGP and F1 simulators.

In attendance for the event will be the major local authorities, as well as car racing champions, including rally driver Dani Sordo, who will be at the Monza Rally Show next weekend. Paolo Ciabatti and the Dorna top man, Carmelo Ezpeleta, are also expected to attend.
