What a horrible two weeks it has been in racing. First the horrible crash and passing of Dan Wheldon and now the crash and passing of Marco Simoncelli. Not to discredit ANY of Dan Wheldon’s achievements both on and off the track, but this Marco death really hit close to home. Not only because I am a rider myself, but because of my huge following of MotoGP for the past 5 seasons. I was never was a fan of his aggressive style, BUT that never made me respect him any less. To be honest as a fan, he will be missed very much. It takes some guts to go out on the track and do the near impossible. Something I could never do. My prayers go out to his team and family. Such a horrible loss. Rest in peace brother. Thank you for the memories.
