The Misano World Circuit holds a lot of memories. It is named after the late Marco Simoncelli. It is where, three years ago, Shoya Tomizawa also tragically died after his collision with Scott Redding and Alex De Angelis.
Those who were in MotoGP paddock rarely forget, with many of the teams (especially Technomag, Tomizawa’s old team with their garage image), riders and fans of Tomizawa posting timely tributes in words or pictures online between the anniversary of his passing and the San Marino Grand Prix.
Japanese rider Taka Nakagami had something special up his sleeve to remember his fallen fellow countryman and unveiled this flag when celebrating his fourth successive 2nd place.
Hoping here he finally gets that win as a reward for such a touching tribute.
