Rossi, Lorenzo visit Petronas Towers

Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo made a visit to the world famous Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur today, the tallest twin buildings in the world and home to Fiat Yamaha Team Premium Sponsor Petronas. The riders appeared in front of some 2000 fans at the Petronas MotoGP Marquee at the foot of the towers to sign autographs and chat about this weekend’s forthcoming race. Afterwards they visited the 86th floor, an area of the building which is generally limited to presidents and ministers, before spending some time on the Sky Bridge which joins the two towers at the 42nd floor.

The Malaysia Grand Prix gets underway this Friday, 23rd October, with the first chance for Valentino Rossi to wrap up the title ahead of his team-mate Lorenzo.

Valentino Rossi Speaks…

"We have had great fun here today at the Petronas Towers. It feels incredibly high, like you’re on top of the world and it’s amazing to see all of Kuala Lumpur all around you. It’s also good to see so many people here and I hope we can do something good at the race this weekend for all the passionate fans here in Malaysia."

Jorge Lorenzo Speaks…

"This place is amazing! I remember seeing them in a film with Catherine Zeta Jones jumping off them and thinking that they were incredible! I’ve really enjoyed today, it’s been a really big, special event and I don’t think I can remember an event before a race with more people than this! I hope we can put on a good show for them this weekend."
