Marco Simoncelli Rest in Peace!

Honda_RC212V_2011_Gresini_Marco_SimoncelliToday is a very sad day for all us motor sports enthusiasts. Today at the Sepang Moto GP (Malaysia) 2011, the last round of 2011 Moto GP we witnessed a horrific accident of Marco Simoncelli, #58 involving two other riders – #46, Valentino Rossi & #5, Colin Edwards leading to the death of the Italian rider.

In an attempt to get up from a high-slide, in the second lap of the race, Simoncelli unknowingly came in front of the racing line the fellow riders and was hit by them from their motorcycles leading to Head, Neck and spinal injuries.

The race was stopped immediately with the red flag and Simoncelli was transported by ambulance to the circuit medical centre where the medical staff worked to resuscitate him.

Despite their efforts, Marco sadly succumbed to his injuries at 4:56pm local time.

We are devastated with his sad demise.
