Team Gresini planning Kato tribute at Motegi

Telefonica Movistar Honda Team Director Fausto Gresini has announced that he will be inviting 1,000 people, mainly children, to a special ceremonial act in honour of Daijiro Kato on the 5th October at the Gauloises Pacific Grand Prix of Motegi. The tribute will take place in the main stand, just before the MotoGP race, with each of the participants contributing to a huge mosaic in honour of their tragic hero.

The team's idea is that the mosaic is made up of the youngsters currently taking part in the Daijiro Cup, the pocketbike series set up by Kato before his death, as well as entrants from a pocketbike race set to be held at the circuit during the Grand Prix. The remaining places will be available from Kato's official website www.daijiro.net from next Saturday, September 6th.
