MotoGP stars visit Jay Leno’s garage
22 July 2010 – Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies and Colin Edwards paid a trip to the garage of American chat show host Jay Leno on Wednesday in order to view the stunning collection of motoring memorabilia housed by the 60-year-old.
As seen by British television viewers in an earlier series of popular motoring magazine Top Gear, Leno boasts an enormous personal collection of over 200 cars and motorcycles, as former World Champions Eddie Lawson, Kenny Roberts and Wayne Rainey also attended on Wednesday.
Elsewhere this week, Lorenzo was delighted to be an audience guest on Leno’s The Tonight Show, with the host having been presented with a Yamaha superbike and helmet designed by Troy Lee, taking on the designs of all riders who visited.
Racing leathers were also presented to Jay before he and the riders enjoyed a Yamaha-presented dinner in the garage.
