Marco Simoncelli

20 January 1987 – 23 October 2011


We have had the honour to work with Marco and team San Carlo Honda Gresini for the past two years. Our grief at the tragic loss of a wonderful sportsman, a legend in the making, a warm and humorous man and a friend knows no bounds.

Our profound sympathies also go out to Marco’s family, San Carlo, and Team Gresini.  Fausto and the Gresini “family” who have had to endure this grief for a second time. (Daijiro Kato d. 6/4/2003)

Here are just a few of our personal memories. I am desolate.
