Tomizawa laid to rest in Japan

Over a thousand attendees paid their respects at the funeral of the Japanese rider, which took place today (Wednesday).

Shoya Tomizawa’s funeral took place on Wednesday in Asahi, Chiba, as the Japanese rider was laid to rest during a public service.

More than a thousand guests paid their respects as the Moto2 rider’s family, friends and fans honoured Shoya, who passed away ten days ago following a crash at Misano.

Fellow Japanese World Championship riders Yuki Takahashi and Tomoyoshi Koyama were amongst those present, as was Technomag-CIP team boss Alain Bronec in an emotional final farewell, in which Shoya’s coffin was surrounded by an arrangement of flowers, photos and his racing attire.
