MotoGP World
The MotoGP World Championship is the premier class of motorcycle road racing. It is currently divided into three classes: MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3. All three classes use four-stroke engines. In 2010, 250 cc two-strokes were replaced by the new Moto2 600 cc four-stroke class. In 2012, 125 cc two-strokes were replaced by the Moto3 250 cc four-stroke class with a weight limit of 65 kg with fuel, and the engine capacity for MotoGP increased from 800 cc to 1,000 cc. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Grand Prix motorcycles are purpose-built racing machines that are neither available for purchase by the general public nor able to be ridden legally on public roads. This contrasts with the various production-based categories of racing, such as the Superbike World Championship and the Isle of Man TT Races that feature modified versions of road-going motorcycles available to the public.

Jorge Lorenzo: "I want to try my hand at Formula 1"

Jorge Lorenzo: "I want to try my hand at Formula 1" | MotoGP World | Scoop.it
2015 MotoGP™ World Champion Jorge Lorenzo spoke to BigNewsNetwork.com about his desire to try a Formula 1 car: “I have tried my hand in GP2. One of my oldest dreams is to try my hand in Formula 1,” he said. However, he’s in no immediate rush to swap two wheels for four, “Obviously I also cannot leave MotoGP because it is my passion. I am what I am because of MotoGP and I still have a lot to do in the sport."

John Surtees is the only person to take titles in both Formula 1 and Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing, taking the 500cc in 1956, 1958, 1959 and 1960 before winning the Formula 1 title in 1964.

Lorenzo also spoke to BNN about his various other hobbies including football, gold and watching movies. Since taking his fifth world title Lorenzo has performed a number of sponsor and press responsibilities, but is ready for 2016: “If it were left to me, I would start the 2016 season right now. I would say bring it on. I am good to go, good to race!"
