MotoGP™ pays tribute to Marco Simoncelli in Sepang

Thursday, 18 October 2012

On the eve of the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, the event at which Marco Simoncelli lost his life last year, MotoGP™ riders, teams and people from the paddock alike paid tribute to the late Italian rider at the place of his tragic accident.

Starting from the San Carlo Honda Gresini team pit box, the team Simoncelli rode for last year, people made their way to Turn 11 on the Sepang circuit, where team owner Fausto Gresini placed a permanent plaque in his honour. After this there was a moment’s silence, followed by a round of applause, then a two-minute silence. Team members and other members of the paddock then went up to the plaque to pay their own private respects.
