Four months ago I was stood track side at Silverstone in awe of the talent and ability of this man as I tried to take photos of these riders and their machines at unimaginable speed. Unfortunately today Marco Simoncelli is no longer with us due to a terrible on track incident in Sepang. I was one of the lucky ones getting to witness his talents before he passed. He was the only Racer on the grid in my mind that could have truly follow in Valentino Rossi’s footsteps after he retires. No other rider had his flare, talent or drive.
Many of us in the studio are huge MotoGP fans and have followed for the sport for more years than we can count. Our thoughts go out to Simoncellis Friends and Family, not forgetting Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards who were helpless to avoid the horrific, unavoidable collision.
