Tribute to Marco Simoncelli
On Thursday 18th October, a plaque in memory of Marco Simoncelli was unveiled in the place of his tragic accident at turn 11 on the Sepang race track.
The Italian rider was considered an up and coming MotoGP star when last year a horrific crash saw his helmet knocked off as a result of a collision with another bike. The 24 year old had been fighting for fourth position when he lost control of the front of his bike and slid across the circuit into the path of oncoming riders on October 23rd 2011.
A new trophy is to be introduced on Saturday in memory of the rider called "Marco Simoncelli - Rookie of the Year", which will be awarded to the best MotoGP newcomer at the Valencia season finale.
In tribute to Marco, Big Ed is calling out to all motorbike race fans to change their profile pictures to a picture of Simoncelli - an incredible rider. Never to be forgotten.
