Another tragic day in motorsport - two in one week.
Sometimes I really hate motorsport.

A colourful character with an enormous amount of talent who was just starting to shine and show his true talent.

RIP Marco.

Yesterday was a terrible day!
It all seems so surreal and still I can't seem to grasp what happened!

I will miss you, Marco!

Thank you for starting a tribute, I haven't been on this forum since the tragedy and had hoped some kind soul honored this young racing warrior that he truly was week in and week out.

My heart is still heavy with sorrow, Godspeed to you, your family, friends, fans and may you rest in peace Marco 'Ciccio' Simoncelli #58.

Really wish I had my own images to share, sadly, I never got to attend one of his races in person.

Such a tradgedy, the only thing we can all take from this is that he died doing what he loved. And although he never won a race in the big class he won the hearts of the crowds which is no mean feat.

RIP Marco, sleep well, keep it pinned
