It is with a heavy heart I sit down to write another tribute to a lost talent within just a week of the tragedy of Dan Wheldon’s loss. But unfortunately the world of motorsport has been rocked again so soon with the devastating news of Marco Simoncelli’s fate.
Marco, or Sideshow Bob as he was sometimes affectionately known, thanks to his big hair, was a great character within Motorcycle racing and his talent was clear for all to see. Loved by many, he had a bright career ahead of him and was without doubt a future champion. Fortunately I wasn’t watching the coverage of the fateful Moto GP race in Malaysia but he died doing what he loved and was ultimately very good at.
My thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to all his Family and Friends. Rest in Peace Marco.
