Abraham leads Simoncelli tribute at Brno

Abraham leads Simoncelli tribute at Brno

The MotoGP™ rider led a breathtaking cavalcade of more than 1300 bikes at the World Championship circuit.

After the success of its tribute to Marco Simoncelli at the end of 2011, the Brno Circuit held a similar event over the weekend in which 1349 bikes took to the World Championship track in remembrance of the late Italian rider.

Led by MotoGP™ rider Karel Abraham and Moto3™ talent Jakub Kornfeil, more than a thousand enthusiastic fans took their bikes onto the 5.4km layout on Sunday, setting a new circuit record for the highest number of machines on track at one time.

"I think the outcome is amazing," said Abraham. "This was one of the first opportunities for bikers to get together after the winter. The Brno Circuit is one of the best venues for such an event."

Ivana Ulmanová, Executive Director of the Brno Circuit, added: "I have to thank everyone. I am glad so many people came even though the weather was far from perfect. There were even some participants from abroad."

MotoGP, 2012, Karel Abraham
