HRC presents two bikes in honour of Marco Simoncelli at Mugello

HRC Executive-Vice President Shuhei Nakamoto presented the late Marco Simoncelli's father Paolo with his son's RC212V race machine and a "Super SIC" inspired Honda CBR1000RR to be auctioned off to raise money for The Marco Simoncelli Foundation.

On the Saturday of the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM at Mugello, Nakamoto, as well as Minoru Kato, Honda Europe Motorcycle Division Director, presented Paolo Simoncelli with the bikes in front of the San Carlo Honda Gresini Hospitality unit. The money raised from the CBR1000RR will benefit the charities supported by The Marco Simoncelli Foundation, which was set up after the rider’s tragic death at the Malaysian Grand Prix last year.

Marking the team’s first return to an Italian track since the loss of Simoncelli, the Gresini squad has now reverted back to its white livery, after having run in black for the first half of the season.
