Once again we're reminded, in the most awful way possible, that the on-the-edge thrill we love about motorsport is also what makes it suck.
At 16.56 local time, Marco Simoncelli passed away as a result of his injuries. We will dearly miss a great character and racer.
There is also an enormous amount to admire and learn from the way Mr SImoncelli Sr conducts himself. An exceptional man.
Great start for CRT at today's test - fastest lap would have secured 3rd on the grid for Sunday's race. IN MOTO FUCKING 2.
