Jorge Lorenzo got his first taste of the new Buddh International Circuit on Wednesday, a possible venue for the MotoGP World Championship in the future. The Yamaha team leader took time out from meeting fans and media at the Auto Expo to visit the new facility, completing a lap on board a Yamaha R15.

The track, owned by the Jaypee Group, played host to its first Formula One Grand Prix last year and after sampling it for himself, Lorenzo thinks it would be a welcome addition to the MotoGP calendar.

“It's been great to visit the Buddh circuit today. The track is very modern and wide. I think it is quite prepared and ready to be on the calendar. I believe it will be exciting to ride with many overtaking opportunities. The Indian people I have met have been very kind and gentle, I would like to see more of India in the future with more time; we didn't get to see so much in just two days here. Now I'm very excited to go to Jakarta to see all my Indonesian fans there.”

Lorenzo will be joined in Jakarta by teammate Ben Spies this weekend and the pair will be eagerly anticipating the first test of 2012 in Malaysia on January 31st.
