Misano honours Peter Lenz

Misano honours Peter Lenz

A minute’s silence was held before the 125cc race in memory of the young American rider who passed away last Sunday at Indianapolis.

A minute-long silence was observed at the Misano circuit on Sunday morning before the 125cc race in tribute to Peter Lenz, the 13 year-old American rider who tragically passed away last weekend at Indianapolis.

Lenz succumbed to injuries sustained in a crash during the warm up lap of the USGPRU MD250H race at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP last Sunday, and this morning at Misano he was honoured with the silence as riders and officials gathered in front of the starting grid to pay tribute.

Amongst those who paid their respects were MotoGP rider Colin Edwards, a personal friend of Peter Lenz and who was particularly affected by the youngster’s death last weekend.
